– international sports, latest sports news, local games and international games

This Friday (14), at the Allianz Arena Stadium in Munich, Germany and Scotland played the opening game of UEFA Euro 2024, which ended with a 5-1 victory for the hosts. Germany's result was expected, as in the last 60 years, Scotland has defeated the team only once, in a friendly in 1999.

Since then, there have been four clashes between the teams, resulting in a draw and three wins for Germany. The teams have not faced each other since 2015. Despite this, the approximately 100,000 Scots who went to Germany to cheer for the dispute were not shaken by the German team's favoritism and were present in the streets and around the stadium.
