  • Andy Robertson Believes Scotland Can Etch Their Names Into The History Books At Euro

Andy Robertson believes Scotland can etch their names into the history books at Euro 2024

Scotland captain Andy Robertson wants Scotland to achieve "legendary" status by reaching the knockout stages at a major international tournament for the first time at Euro 2024.

Scotland sides have played at eight World Cups and three European Championships without being able to get past the first stage.

Steve Clarke's side reached the 2020 Euros — the first major tournament for the country since the 1998 World Cup in France — but again fell short by losing to Croatia and the Czech Republic either side of a goalless draw with England at Wembley.

Scotland start Euro 2024 by taking on host country Germany on Friday before facing Switzerland and Hungary.

Liverpool left-back Robertson, who revealed he is in a good place physically and mentally after a scare in training on Monday, was bold in his ambitions at the media conference at the Munich Arena.

He said: "The first Euros was massive for us, now we want to compete. Last time we felt in the England game we did pretty well but let ourselves down in the other two or thought we could do a bit better.

"We don't want to have any regrets this time. What's the worst that can happen? We go into a long list of teams that have failed to make it out the group so let's start from that point and move on from it.

"We believe we can be the team to make history. We have put ourselves in a good position by qualifying first and foremost and let's see what we can do.

"We're excited by the challenge, we're excited about what's ahead and if we perform the way I know we can perform then I'm confident we can make history.

"We know what is at stake. As I said, what's the worst that can happen? You join the list of good Scotland teams that failed to make it out the group.

"The flipside to that is we can be the first team to do that.

"We have lots of incentives to do well but that is the main one, to become a legendary squad, the first team to make it to the knockout stages.

"That is driving us forward but we are in a difficult group and we have to be at our best to have a chance of doing that."
