Euro 2012 – Another tough draw for Scotland

Posted in Euro 2012 on February 11, 2010 by Tartan Army Soldier

The team have been drawn for the Euro 2012 qualifiers, and the groups are set. Scotland has been drawn with into a group including champions Spain. We also have the Czech Republic, Lithuania and Liechtenstein. By rights Scotland should come third, but we all know that’s not any good. Hopefully the team can regain their form and play like they did in the Euro 2008 qualifiers and, with a bit of luck, make it to the finals.
