England made history last night with a 2-1 win over Denmark in the semi final of Euro 2020, sending the Three Lions into their first final since 1966. Harry Kane’s rebound from a missed penalty in extra time settled the game after a valiant effort from the Danes. The penalty was won in controversial fashion by Raheem Sterling, who went down under light contact. The Scottish press have accused the England man of diving, with Scotland’s Metro saying: “England Dive Into The Final.”

The back page spread said “They Think It’s Fall Over…” before a sub-heading added: ‘It is now as Sterling’s “dive” earns England crucial penalty.”

The rivalry between England and Scotland is nothing new – as shown by events at the 2018 World Cup.

During England’s path to the semi-finals, Scottish fans backed their rival’s opponents.

Before England met Sweden in the quarter-finals, Scottish fans got behind the Scandinavians.

One social media user even begged his newly adopted country to “do it for Abba”.
