Scotland captain Andy Robertson, Scott McTominay and Kieran Tierney look likely to feature at Euro 2020 despite Liverpool and Manchester United plans for a Super League.
English football’s ‘big six,’ Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham are part of the group who want to form a breakaway league. La Liga’s Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid and Serie A’s AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus are also involved in the widely-condemned venture.
It’s resulted in all-out war across football as huge statements are thrown between giants. One of the big statements released by FIFA and UEFA was that players could be banned from representing their nations at tournaments like Euro 2020 and the World Cup. It would means the likes of McTominay and Robertson would miss out if Liverpool and Manchester United begin matches in the Super League.
Scotland’s squad for Euro 2020 is to be submitted by June 1st but an SFA insider says those at clubs such as Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool will be ok to play for Steve Clarke at Scotland’s first major tournament since 1998.
They said (Daily Record): “The last thing UEFA needs right now is to devalue this tournament by banning so many of the world’s best players from taking part. That’s why there is a feeling of confidence Andy, Kieran and Scott will be available to Steve.”
