Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney is hoping to take his club form onto the international stage as Scotland prepare to do battle with England at Wembley Stadium.
Steve Clarke’s men travel south for their second group game of Euro 2020 and they desperately need a victory to bolster their hopes of remaining in the tournament.
Fortunately for Scotland, left-back Tierney knows the feeling of success at Wembley having been victorious on a couple of occasions with Arsenal at the national stadium.
The defender played a key role as the Gunners lifted the FA Cup against Chelsea in 2020, playing the entirety of the final.
He then lifted more silverware just months later as Manchester City were defeated in the Community Shield.
Tierney has suggested that whilst the magnitude of the game against the Three Lions cannot be understated, he is aiming for yet another memorable victory under the famous arch – this time with Scotland.
Talking in an interview with The Guardian, he said: “We’re going to go down there and fight for everything. It’s a derby. It’s a big rivalry in football. There is no doubt about it, we’re really looking forward to this game.

“I’ve played at Wembley a couple of times; fortunately for Arsenal there have been some good results there. If I can keep that going I’ll be delighted.
“All the families will be looking forward to it, it’s a massive occasion for every player to be hopefully in the squad for a Euros game but also because I missed out on the first one. My family were just as gutted as me. Hopefully it will be a good weekend for us.”
