SCOTLAND AIM TO REACH EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP

The last time the Scottish national football (soccer) team reached a major finals was the world cup way back in 1998, today they have the chance to reach the European Championships and all they need to do is beat the world cup holders, Italy and they will have done it.

I know most Americans do not really follow football (soccer) but you may be interested to know just how much this event means to the Scottish nation. The game is being played at home at Hampden Park in Glasgow, the kick of is at 5pm local time.

The streets of Glasgow, and all over the length and breadth of Scotland, people are looking out their kilts, looking out their Scotland tops, looking out their 'see-you jimmy hats' (tartan hats with ginger hair underneath) and they are preparing to cheer on the national team.

Over 50,000 fans will be at the game roaring the team on to success, many thousands more will be in the pub doing the same.

This game really does mean a lot to the whole country of Scotland.

So all I would like to say is,

C'MON THE SCOTLAND

We hate Coca-Cola, We hate Fanta too,
We're the famous Tartan Army
And we drink Irn Bru!

O flower of Scotland
When will we see, your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill, and glen
And stood against them
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward, Tae think again

The hills are bare now
And Autumn leaves, lie thick and still
For land that is lost now
But oh so dearly held
We stood against him
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward, Tae think again

Those days are passed now
And in the past they must remain
But we can still rise now
And be that nation again
That stood against him
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward, Tae think again

I say. Baggy old bean, most terribly sorry.
But, don't you know, we're now in with a jolly old chance after all, what!
Dashed good show by the Israelis.
Bowler hats and brollies to the fore, chaps!
