Scotland boss Steve Clarke insists his men can handle the pressure of playing in their first major championship for more than two decades.

The Scots kick-off their Euro 2020 challenge this afternoon against the Czech Republic at Hampden Park in front of 12,000 supporters, 23 years since they competed in the World Cup in France.

“We have done well to be in the tournament. We are looking forward to it,” said Clarke.

“We understand big games, big moments. Big games are for big players and we believe we have enough big players to handle the occasion.

“Andy Robertson has played in World Championships, he has won the Champions League. Billy Gilmour was involved with Chelsea a couple of weeks ago in the Champions League (final).
