After England's 1-0 win over Croatia in the Group D opener, Scotland and the Czech Republic start their UEFA Euro 2020 campaign with a mouth-watering clash at Hampden Park.
After finishing behind Belgium and Russia in Group I, Scotland survived penalty shoot-outs against Israel and Serbia in the playoffs to make the finals. But Czech have had no such troubles, finishing second two England in Group A to make the finals.
Head-to-head: In their previous meeting, in a UEFA Nations League match, Scotland defeated the Czech Republic by a solitary goal last October. That was their third win on the trot against the Narodak. However, the overall head-to-head record is 4-4 with one draw in nine meetings. Czech last beat Scotland in October 2010.
