Piers thinks Scotland has what it takes to beat England (Picture: ITV)
It seems Piers Morgan is confident that Scotland’s national football team has what it takes to beat England in tonight’s highly anticipated Euro 2020 match.
The game will see Scotland hoping to get their first points of the tournament, after losing their opening match against the Czech Republic by two goals to nil.
Meanwhile, England have got off to a brilliant start, beating Croatia 1-0 last week – marking the first time in the history of the tournament that the side has won its opening match.
And Piers, 56, reckons that the weather seems to have an impact on how well each team will do.
Currently, much of England is experiencing rainfall after almost two weeks of warm weather, with flood warnings in place in some areas. Meanwhile, many parts of Scotland are enjoying much sunnier temperatures.
Taking to Twitter, the former Good Morning Britain host wrote: ‘The harder it rains in London, and the colder it gets, the better Scotland’s chances are tonight.
‘It’s like a heatwave for them.’
Piers divided his followers with his comments, with one person responding: ‘Big fan of yours @piersmorgan but this is a tad harsh. Comon SCOTLAND.’
Another added: ‘Scotland objectively have little chance. Think the game will be an anti climax.’
But it seems some fans do have faith in Piers’ words, as one enthused: ‘Aye it’s gonna be hard for us but I’m hoping the squad shows up and we see a good game of fitbaw [football].’
‘Perfect conditions for us, the stars are aligned,’ another wrote.
22,500 fans are expected to be at Wembley Stadium tonight for the match, as the Euro tournament continues to follow Covid-secure guidelines concerning fans attending large events.
Seeing as England beat Croatia in their first game, they could secure their spot in the knockout stages with a victory over Scotland.
However, Scotland are determined to take points from England in order to keep their Euro 2020 campaign alive.
