Introduction

As the European Championship draws near, Scotland's national team is gearing up for a momentous campaign. Defender Ryan Porteous, in an exclusive interview, shares his thoughts on their readiness and aspirations.

Chasing Excellence

With the Euros fast approaching, Porteous firmly believes that Scotland is "not far off" the best teams heading to Germany this summer. The tournament kicks off with a clash against the host nation on 14 June, followed by matches against Switzerland and Hungary in Group A.

Crucial Friendlies

Preparations continue with crucial friendlies against Netherlands and Northern Ireland. Porteous emphasizes that these matches serve as an opportunity to showcase Scotland's capabilities, especially against top-tier opponents. "We want to grow on and off the pitch," he asserts. Analyzing previous encounters with England and France, the team aims to fine-tune their strategies and build cohesion.

Competition and Loyalty

Porteous, capped nine times, reflects on his journey. His impressive debut in a hard-fought 0-0 draw against Ukraine secured Scotland's promotion to the top tier of the Nations League. While acknowledging the fierce competition for starting spots, he appreciates the manager's unwavering faith in him. "There are no easy places up for grabs," he admits, but his commitment and growth have earned him a pivotal role in the squad.

Ready for the Challenge

Scotland's journey to Euro 2024 has been marked by resilience, determination, and teamwork. As they prepare to face Europe's elite, Porteous and his teammates are poised to make their mark. The manager's trust, healthy competition, and collective spirit fuel their ambition to compete at the highest level.
