Scotland to open Euro 2024 with hosts Germany
Scotland will kick off Euro 2024 after they were drawn to face tournament hosts Germany in Group A.
Steve Clarke's side, who sealed qualification for the finals with two matches to spare, will play in the opening match in Munich on June 14 before games against Switzerland and Hungary.
Scotland lost to Germany at the group stage of Euro 92, a 2-0 defeat preventing the Scots from progressing.
They also faced West Germany at the finals of the 1986 World Cup, where the Germans won 2-1 en route to the final. Germany have won the three most recent encounters, though.
Scotland have never faced Hungary in a competitive match but have won three of their previous nine encounters — while they beat the Swiss 1-0 in Euro 96 at Villa Park, the teams' last competitive encounter.
Clarke told the BBC: "It's nice to open the tournament and nice to be involved in that first game and hopefully we can set the tournament off with a good match.
"We've got to make sure it's not about the occasion and it’s about the match. We look forward to it, it's an exciting draw.
"I don't think it mattered who we were going to get, it was always going to be exciting for us. [It is] nice to be involved in the draw process and [we are] looking forward to next summer now."
Clarke expects Germany to provide a warm welcome to the Tartan Army, adding: "They had better be ready for a lot of Scotsmen coming!
"It's great to be involved and hopefully everyone can have a great time next summer."
