Scotland will be 'supremely confident'

Former Scotland forward James McFadden said Scotland "will be confident they can get out of" a difficult Group A that features three-time winners Germany.

"It's a tough group, I'm not going to lie and say I'm delighted with the group," he told BBC Two.

"The opening game against Germany will be a great occasion and all the pressure will be on Germany to go and get a result, and that should suit Scotland because against the better sides they tend to do OK."

Scotland finished bottom of their group at Euro 2020, losing to Croatia and the Czech Republic, while they played out a goalless draw with England.

McFadden added: "I think Scotland will give a good account of themselves and be a very good side because they have had the experience of playing in the Euros before this group and the disappointment of those games. They will want to put it right.
