Graeme Souness and Ian Wright have leapt to praise Liverpool full-back, Andy Robertson, ahead of arguably the biggest game as Scotland captain
Quietly confident going into the England match on Friday night as they looked to pick up their first points of Euro 2020 and avenge their defeat 25 years ago after Alan Shearer and Paul Gascoigne halted the Scots European aspirations.
Patrik Schick's double soured the Tartan Army's return to a major tournament as a goal in each half from the Bayer Leverkusen striker fired the Czech Republic top.
Earlier in the day, Croatia's second-half equaliser secured a point against the Czech Republic and saw Tomas Soucek's side extend their lead at the top of the group. England knew a win would book their place in the knockout stages.

Speaking on ITV ahead of the clash with England, Graeme Souness spoke highly of the full-back, he said: "He’s someone who shows great energy and wants to get forward at every opportunity.
"For a full-back, he’s as good as anyone out there at left-back right now. He looks to be a really solid citizen when you hear him speak. He’s one of those players that when you analyse him, there’s not a lot to dislike about him, he’s got everything to be a top, top player.
"He plays at a top club, week in and week out, he has the same energy levels, he never picks and chooses when he’s bang at it. There’s a lot to like about him.”
During the group opener defeat, Robertson ranked amongst the highest for key passes after the first round of Euro 2020 matches, ahead of the stars of the tournament favourites including Spain's Jordi Alba.
"You look at his eyes and see the determination, the drive and what he's about," Arsenal and England legend Ian Wright said.
"Not only what he does on the pitch leading by example, but what he does off the pitch with his AR26 Foundation, what he's tried to do for young people in Scotland for jobs, employment and all the experiences he gives people, he does so much as a person and a leader."
