. . and his Euro tip: England

Have your say

ALEX Salmond has issued a good luck message to England as the European Championship kicks off in Poland and Ukraine.

The First Minister said Roy Hodgson’s players are capable of “going all the way” to the final. He also wished the Ireland team well as they fight to qualify for the knock-out stages from a group including Italy, Croatia and Spain.

Ahead of the 2006 World Cup, then First Minister Jack McConnell sparked controversy when he supported underdogs Trinidad and Tobago, who were in England’s group.
