  • Germany v Scotland kicks off at 8pm UK time tonight as Euro 2024 begins
  • Are you a Scotland fan in Germany and do you know the fan whose manhood was exposed? Email: tips@dailymail.com 

It’s a long-held observation that you should never ask a Scotsman what’s under his kilt.

But that tradition was ignored by one German TV host, who was left extremely red-faced after a major wardrobe malfunction live on air.

While covering the build-up for Euro 2024, an unsuspecting presenter for Welt TV saw a lot more of the Tartan Army than he bargained for. 

Steffen Schwarzkopf was reporting live scenes of beer-guzzling, kilt-wearing fans drinking in the streets and decided to approach one group.

But the TV segment soon descended into mayhem when they planted a sticker on the reporter’s head and chest. 

As they continued chanting and drinking, one of the fans decided to play a prank by lifting up a fan’s skirt and proving what we all know to be true about what’s underneath a kilt. 

But despite having his manhood exposed live on air, the fan didn’t seem to mind and laughed along with his friends.

The camera quickly zoomed back to Mr Schwarzkopf who appeared rather embarrassed and shielded his eyes with his hands, sparking hoots of laughter by the raucous bunch. 

The group are among thousands of Tartan Army fans who headed to Munich for the opening clash against Germany tonight. 

Thousands more will watch from home as Scots try to will the national men’s football team on to victory as they take on Germany in tonight’s Euro 2024 opening match.

The man whose kilt was lifted up was wearing a Germany shirt but it was not immediately clear who he is supporting.

Scotland fan Cameron Angus, 25, was in the group of supporters in Munich around the fan.

The recruiter from Glasgow revealed to MailOnline that none of the group knew the man – and they hadn’t seen him since.

Mr Angus said: ‘We’re obviously in Munich and there’s journalists and media with microphones wanting to talk to our pals.’

He told how Welt chief reporter Steffen Schwarzkopf was among the broadcasters who approached them in the square.

Mr Angus continued: ‘A guy came up to us and we gave him a bit of banter and stuck a sticker on his head.’

The presenter then began his broadcast and one of Mr Angus’s friends lifted up the man’s kilt.

But he added: ‘The guy whose kilt got lifted, we don’t know who he is – he’s just a random guy. I think he must have been Scottish with the kilt on.’

Mr Angus said that after the broadcast, Mr Schwarzkopf ‘kind of shook his hand and he was laughing a bit but he did look a bit concerned’.

The fan added that he woke up this morning to a ‘billion messages from everyone’, and heard someone claim that the man has a wife and daughter.

Mr Angus said scenes in Munich were ‘chaos’, adding that the ratio between Scotland and fans and German fans was about 7-1 and it is ‘just a sea of kilts as blue’.

He said had bought a one-way ticket to Germany, and knew most of the people in the video, but added: ‘It’s just coincidence that the guy whose c**k came out, no one knows.’

Speaking about the experience of being in Germany, Mr Angus – who has a ticket for tonight’s match – said: ‘We’ve been really building up to this tournament. For us we just want to be there.

‘I’m 25 and this is the second Euros I’ve seen us in. Just being here is magic and to get some sort of result tonight, a draw, would be unbelievable.’

MailOnline has translated what Mr Schwarzkopf told viewers in German during the report.

He said: ‘Really, really traditional, I would say. I’m not just talking about their football jerseys, but naturally also about the Scottish skirts, the kilts, that are worn here.

‘They are part of it. What is surely also part of it is the beer. But what I also see relatively often – I won’t necessarily wear this to the game tomorrow [as the reporter points to the Scotland sticker a fan stuck to his shirt] – what I also see and think is quite pretty is the Germany jersey on top and the Scottish kilt on the bottom.’

A fan then pulled up the kilt to reveal the man’s genitals, and the reporter said: ‘Oh my God.’ He then said the shirt and kilt mix ‘shows a little bit what the mood is like here and it is, in the end, a pure advertisement for Germany what we can see here’.

A later report on the Welt website said the presenter ‘mingled with the kilt-wearers who had travelled there in a celebratory mood – and gained some deep insights’.

The game 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.

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.’
