Scotland have crashed out of their first Euros in 25 years, while England marched on to the knockout stages by winning their group.

The Tartan Army's joy of watching their national side in an international tournament for the first time in decades was abruptly cut short on Tuesday evening.

A crushing 3-1 defeat to Croatia at Glasgow's Hampden Park saw Scotland finish bottom of Group D, meaning they missed out on one of the four places available in the second round for the best third-placed teams.

However, their rivals south of the border enjoyed a more productive evening, with England beating the Czech Republic in a relatively comfortable 1-0 victory at London's Wembley Stadium.

The win saw the Three Lions top the same group, but it will mean they end up playing whoever finishes second in Group F - either France, Germany, Portugal or outsiders Hungary.
