England vs Scotland sees sporting royalty at Wembley as David Beckham and Alex Ferguson watch on

SIR Alex Ferguson and David Beckham were among the sporting royalty to watch England's clash with Scotland.

The footballing legends will put their mutual respect aside to cheer on their respective sides at Wembley for the crunch Euro 2020 clash.

Fergie, born in Glasgow, will be rooting for Steve Clarke's underdogs while Golden Balls Beckham remains a Three Lions hero.

The pair won nine major trophies together at Manchester United including the famous treble in 1999.

Fergie, 79, also had a brief stint as boss of Scotland in 1985 but left the role after failing to qualify from their World Cup group a year later.

Despite his remarkable success in football, that includes 17 major trophies in the dugout, the ex-United boss wasn't handed the red carpet treatment in North London.

After arriving at the home of football, Ferguson was refused entry to VIP parking by a steward.

Nevertheless, he will be hoping his presence in the crowd can inspire Scotland to pull off a shock upset.

Meanwhile Beckham, 46, earned 115 caps for his country and famously scored the free-kick against Greece that sent England to the 2002 World Cup.

The oldest fixture in international football is steeped in history - with the last time England took on the Scots in the Euros way back in 1996.

Gazza marked his winning goal with his infamous dentist chair celebration as the Three Lions went on to win 2-0.
