ROBBO’S RALLYING CRY
Andy Robertson wants Scotland to believe as they take on the Czech Republic.
The Liverpool star and Scotland captain said: “Since the manager came in he’s always said we’re a good squad but lacking a wee bit of belief.
“Being able to qualify for a tournament for the first time in 23 years gives you belief you can do it again and go and perform in the big tournaments.
“I’d like us to have more belief in ourselves, more confidence, in being able to show what we can do. Hopefully we can do that on the biggest stage. If we do, we’re a right good team on our day.
“We’re all so excited. It’s been 23 long years waiting. We can feel the nation is excited for it and it’s important we try to keep a smile on their faces.
“I’m sure we could have sold out Hampden plenty of times over for this game. There are 12,000 lucky enough to be in there but the whole nation will be watching, and we’ll feel that support and that love. Hopefully we can do them proud.
“The fact a lot of kids, teenagers and people in their early 20s, have unfortunately never witnessed us in a major tournament, and the fact that’s now going to happen, I hope it inspires the nation.”
