Motion text

That this House congratulates the Scottish National Men’s Team for their qualification to Euro 2020; welcomes the team qualifying for their first major finals tournament since World Cup 1998; notes that the team have now gone nine games unbeaten, with that streak beginning in October 2019; praises David Marshall for his save in the penalty shoot-out against Serbia in the Nations League play-off, ensuring the team’s qualification; applauds Ryan Christie on his 52nd minute goal to put Scotland ahead, and for his post-match interview which received widespread acclaim and respect in Scotland; thanks Sky Television for broadcasting the game on Freeview allowing the vast majority of the Scottish public to watch the game; further notes the widespread appreciation of the work done by Stevie Clarke as manager and his team in securing a hugely significant achievement; and wishes the team well, not only in its forthcoming games against Slovakia and Israel which could secure promotion to the top tier of the UEFA Nations League, but in the Euro 2020 tournament itself when Scotland will face the Czech Republic and Croatia at Hampden, and will be looking to exorcise the demons of 1996 when they face the “Auld Enemy” at Wembley.
