Millions of Scots are set to will the national men’s football team on to victory as they take on Germany tonight in the highly anticipated opening match of Euro 2024.

The match in Munich is the first of 51 to be played over the next month to decide the next European champions, with the final at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium on July 14.

Tens of thousands of members of the Tartan Army have made the trip to Germany to cheer on their heroes, and at home thousands more are expected to pack out venues specially set up in cities to screen the game.

One hilarious video showed a plane full of Scots on the way to Munich – with one lone woman with her headphones on in the middle, looking thoroughly miserable.

It comes after some outlets in Munich ran out of beer earlier this week – including Woerners’ bar in the city’s Marienplatz, just hours after some had fans arrived. 

At London Heathrow Airport this morning, Scotland fan Cameron Moffat, 30, told MailOnline that he was excited to be flying to Munich.

Mr Moffat, who turns 31 tomorrow, said: ‘It’ll be a bit of a party. First to Munich and then me and my pals are out to Cologne as well.

‘It’s a bit expensive but it’s not happened for a wee while. I’ll see the sights but I imagine it’ll be too busy to do anything – plenty of the Tartan Army out there.

‘I have tickets to the Switzerland game but the opener was unaffordable. The Olympic Park fanzone is where we’re aiming for. Come on the Scots.’

Also at Heathrow today was Scotland fan Ian, 62, who met fellow supporters Alan and Dan on the way to the airport.

He said Scotland had a ‘very good’ chance at the competition and thought there would be a big upset against Germany tonight. ‘It’s a big one,’ he told MailOnline. ‘They should be careful what they wish for.’

Germany are third favourite to win the tournament behind France and England and while the odds appear to be stacked heavily against Scotland beating them, many supporters are hoping their side can take something from tonight’s game.

Scotland have never beaten Germany in a competitive fixture and have won only one of their last nine matches – a 2-0 friendly win over minnows Gibraltar at the start of the month.

‘Everyone is fully fit, flying, desperate to be selected and ready to go,’ he said.

‘The enormity of the opener, however, is a bit of a sideshow and hopefully we don’t get too involved in that.

‘It’s a difficult game. One of the mantras I’ve always had is respect everyone and fear no one.

‘We have respect for the host nation, we know they’re a good team but hopefully we can show everyone we’re a good team as well.

‘I can enjoy it. I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in big matches, the Champions League final for example, it was nice to be involved in the last Euros.

‘I can enjoy it, but I’ll enjoy it even more once we’ve got four points on the board.’

‘It’s been a long time since 1998 when we actually travelled abroad to appear in a tournament like this.

‘That’s why everyone is so excited. We’re proud we’ve been able to do back-to-back European Championships and hopefully by the end of this we’ll be even more proud at having done something a little bit more special in regards to Scottish football.’

Asked about Germany, who are unbeaten in four games this year after an unconvincing 2023, Clarke said: ‘They’re a good team, I think people were trying to talk them down a little bit.

‘I think Julian Nagelsmann found, like I did, it takes a while to find your best squad and team formation.

Clarke admits the invasion of the Tartan Army will ‘give us a big boost’.

The former Kilmarnock and West Brom boss added: ‘They’re going to be behind us in every minute of every game and that’s really important for us.

‘We’ve had a little taste of it already at our base in. I’m sure there will be a few around in Munich tonight that we won’t see. We hope they will enjoy themselves and behave themselves.’

First Minister John Swinney, who will be attending the match, told Holyrood during First Minister’s Questions yesterday it was ‘great to see Scotland back in Europe where we rightly belong’.

‘As First Minister I want to wish Steve Clarke’s team the best of luck and wish the huge numbers of Scotland supporters making the journey a safe and memorable trip,’ he said.

Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross, Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar and Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Alex Cole-Hamilton also wished the team good luck ahead of kick-off.

Captain Andy Robertson said he wants Scotland to achieve ‘legendary’ status by reaching the knockout stages of Euro 2024.

Scotland sides have played at eight World Cups and three European Championships without being able to get past the first stage.

Steve Clarke’s side reached the 2020 Euros – the first major tournament for the country since the 1998 World Cup in France – but again fell short by losing to Croatia and the Czech Republic either side of a goalless draw with England at Wembley.

He said: ‘The first Euros was massive for us, now we want to compete. Last time we felt in the England game we did pretty well but let ourselves down in the other two or thought we could do a bit better.

‘We don’t want to have any regrets this time. What’s the worst that can happen? We go into a long list of teams that have failed to make it out the group so let’s start from that point and move on from it.

‘We believe we can be the team to make history. We have put ourselves in a good position by qualifying first and foremost and let’s see what we can do.

‘We’re excited by the challenge, we’re excited about what’s ahead and if we perform the way I know we can perform then I’m confident we can make history.

‘We know what is at stake. As I said, what’s the worst that can happen? You join the list of good Scotland teams that failed to make it out the group.

‘The flipside to that is we can be the first team to do that.

‘We have lots of incentives to do well but that is the main one, to become a legendary squad, the first team to make it to the knockout stages.

‘That is driving us forward but we are in a difficult group and we have to be at our best to have a chance of doing that.’
