Scotland star Jack Hendry will discover in the coming days if he is going to be fit for Euro 2020.

The defender damaged his shoulder after a horror tackle by Mehdi Carcela during KV Oostende's weekend play-off win over Standard Liege.

The on-loan Celtic player has severe swelling and stud marks on his right leg, but it was the impact of the fall that has caused the most damage.

There were fears that Hendry had broken his shoulder and though an X-Ray has dismissed that there is a concern there could be cartilage or ligament damage in and around the shoulder.
Hendry has to wait for an MRI scan over the next 24 to 48 hours to see the extent of the damage.
Hendry, who has picked up one of Belgium's player of the year awards, has helped Oostende into the European fight and his impressive displays won him a Scotland call-up for the last World Cup qualifiers and started against Austria and Israel. [Daily Record per BBC]

Having just had another non-committal email from the Scotland Supporters Club , I am beginning to doubt if having been a member of this organisation for decades has been/will be any advantage to me in obtaining access to tickets for the Scotland Euro games.🙄
Admittedly, SSC couldn't have predicted the impact of the Pandemic on ticket numbers but it seems that sitting (eg standing, in practice) in the North Stand at Hampden in a half empty ground supporting the team through all the many lows ,will not result in a reward for loyalty! I hope that I am wrong.

Those SSC members who have accumulated enough points through home and away attendance will get priority over the sparse ticket allocation which is the fairest system.

If reports are true anyone who does get a ticket will have to sit 4 seats apart from the next supporter

Thanks, Vinnie, and that's indeed the fairest system , even though it may lead to me and my son missing out ,since our perfect attendance record at Hampden will be offset by limited attendance at away games.
I must have missed that announcement and I think that SSC should repeat that message and be more transparent on the likely numbers involved (as they must know fairly accurately, even before confirmation from UEFA . I just think that they are stalling on giving out bad news to the majority of their members , who joined for the main. purpose of getting priority to tickets).

You never missed any announcement Franco,theres not been one Laughing this is information I,ve gleaned
SSC started to go down hill when Marjory left and CS and transparency leaves a lot to be desired
With UEFA selling the tickets in conjunction with each association I wouldn,t bet on our side of things running smoothly


Dont know if you seen this but a good read

....although, ever the optimist, I have accommodation booked for my son and me in Central London for the Thursday & Friday nights of the England v Scotland game. If no tickets, then I need to cancel that 30 days in advance to avoid being charged....patience will wear thin quite soon.....

Think the majority have their hotels booked its the price of trains or flights thats the main problem.Book them just now and its non refundable

I reckon somewhere between 11 and 13 points would secure a ticket for Wembley on an allocation of 3600 tickets

Yes, all done a wee while back. As for transport, all fine with that. Reason for planning to stay over for two nights is that we're driving down and back (well, as far as a Hertfordshire commuter rail terminus), local train or Underground from there. The car has hardly been anywhere for a year, so it won't know what's hit it, but hey-ho - also less COVID risk with airports or too many hours on a train

A bruising end to the English Championship season has left Scotland boss Steve Clarke with a Euro 2020 sweat after two of his frequent squad members limped out of their final league games.
Most concern centres on midfielder Kenny McLean – who scored vital penalties in the qualification campaign shoot-outs – though striker Lyndon Dykes was withdrawn at half-time after going down with a knee injury in the first half of Queen’s Park Rangers’ win over Luton Town.
Manager Daniel Farke admits concern for the midfielder’s medial collateral ligament and hopes he will not miss the summer’s tournament. [Scotland on Sunday per BBC ]

Just done my own MCL.................... about 10 days ago actually. The recovery is painfully slow. I hope "paid for" treatment bears fruit more rapidly. (Recurrence of old Rugby injuries)

I wondered why you weren't named on The Lions tour!😉

My sympathies, Big Alex, and hope that there is not too much frustration before full recovery.
