The Czech Republic men’s national football team has discovered their final opponents for Euro 2020.

Scotland beat Serbia 5-4 on penalties in the final of their Nationals League play-off to secure the final sport in Group D.

The Group also includes England and Croatia while all the games taking place between them will be hosted in Glasgow and London.

Czech Republic recently lost back-to-back matches against Scotland--including a 2-1 defeat in Olomouc--albeit the majority of first team players were unavailable in that game due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the camp.

Hampden Park will play host to the game between the two sides on 14 Jun 2021. It will be Scotland’s first tournament fixture since 1998.

Euro 2020 is still being branded as such, despite being moved to next summer due to issues surrounding the coronavirus.

It is not yet known if fans will be allowed to attend the tournament, and if so, how full the stadiums will be due to the ongoing COVID pandemic.

The tournament will now include Slovakia, Hungary and North Macedonia, who also won their qualification play-offs last night.
