The Hibernian striker has high hopes ahead of the opening game with Czech Republic.

苏格兰 striker Kevin Nisbet believes they can follow in the footsteps of 威尔士 and make their mark on the big stage.

The Scots end their 23-year absence from major tournament action on Monday when they take on 捷克共和国 at Hampden in their opening Euro 2020 encounter.

“Anything can happen in the 欧元 ” the 24-year-old added. “希腊 won it one year as well and nobody expected them to win it.

“First and foremost for us it’s just to get out the group and then we will regroup and take it from there.

“All concentration is on the Czech game. It’s a massive game for us and, if we can get a result there, it stands us in good stead for the rest of the group games.

“You want to get off to a good start in any match and in any tournament you play in so it’ll be full focus on the Czech game and how we’re going to try to beat them.”
