Rio Ferdinand has revealed Sir Alex Ferguson’s prediction for England v Scotland after the Tartan Army lost their opening match of Euro 2020.
Patrik Schick’s excellent brace for the Czech Republic has left Scotland’s qualification hopes hanging by a thread – and no Scotland team has escaped a group at a major tournament, which is something I’m sure Steve Clark is trying to fix.
Former Manchester United defender and captain Rio Ferdinand has revealed how Ferguson thinks Scotland are going to overrun England – who beat Croatia 1-0 in their opening match – on Friday.
Ferdinand told his FIVE YouTube channel: “Can I just say something: Scotland are getting beaten 1-0!
“Sir Alex Ferguson has been on my phone all morning. Let me see if I can text him back right now. I’m gonna text him now: ‘Are you OK boss?’
“He thinks they [Scotland] are going to beat us [England], he thinks they’re going to overrun England. They’ve got to get past this first game before that!”
Ferdinand added: “Who’s the other one I’ve got on my phone who’s been blowing it up? Darren Fletcher. ‘Fletch, you alright?’”
Can you see Scott McTominay and co overrunning England?
England couldn’t have asked for a better start at the tournament and Gareth Southgate will be looking to build on that by beating Scotland. They’ve still got key players out injured like Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson.
