Scotland Football team confirm they will NOT take the knee at Euro 2020.

Scotland Football team not taking the knee

Steve Clarke said he would speak to his players this week before deciding if they would reverse a decision taken to no longer take the knee. They felt then that the symbol had become diluted.

A statement from Scotlands Football team read:

  • “The Scotland Men’s National Team will continue to take a stand against racism prior to kick-off for all UEFA EURO 2020 matches.The squad, coaching staff and backroom members will stand up to racism ahead of the Group D matches against Czech Republic, England and Croatia.”

Scotlands Captain Andy Robertson added:

  • “It is important we continue to tackle the issue of racism and raise awareness of the need to change people’s mindsets but also their behaviours. Prior to our World Cup qualifiers in March we spoke as a group and felt that taking a stand was the best way for us to show solidarity and also to reinforce the need for meaningful change in society.”
