There had been hopes for Scotland following their impressive 0-0 draw with England at Wembley on Friday night leaving them only needing a win to stand any chance of progressing to the first round of the knockout stages.
It wasn’t to be for the Scots as their men’s teams first major tournament since 1998 ended in despair and disappointment as they finished bottom of their respective group.
The frustration from their fans was noticeable, especially amongst the 2,500 supporters who had gathered to watch the match in Glasgow Green.
Their exit was perhaps summed up by this one fan, who was captured by BBC News cameras after he went to kick a table in anger but completely missed. Fortunately, he looked to have avoided giving himself an injury.
🤦♂️😅 This annoyed Scotland fan went to kick the table and missed...

As fans filed out of the fan zone Kar Marshall told the
: “No matter the result, this has been a ray of light for everyone and a reminder that we can soon get back to normal.
“Scotland’s team captured the imagination of the whole country and the fans never got on their back, even after losing the first match. It’s proven that Scotland is a really proud country. We’re still a proud country. I’m definitely up for more of this.”
Well done Scotland. It wasn’t meant to be but the scenes of your
will live on for a long time.
