Thousands of Scottish football fans headed to Leicester Square, in the West End of Central London where they wore their country's replica football shirts, native kilts, waved flags, and set off coloured smoke bombs ahead of watching the EURO20 match against England which ended in a 0-0 draw, enough to keep Scotland in the tournament. Supporters celebrated in the capital drinking heavily in large groups although they had been urged not to travel to London due to Coronavirus restrictions unless they had a ticket or had organised somewhere to watch the Euro 2020 game held at Wembley Stadium.
