A video of a flare up between England and Scotland fans before Friday’s meeting was mocked as most hilarious yet by social media users.
A short video, including another, is going viral on Twitter with mostly each and every one of the thousands watching it laughing their head of at the scenes playing out.
Majority of the Scots coming down have been behaving well, getting in the party spirit, singing, drinking and even doing the conga!

Over 22,000 of the Tartan Army have gathered in pouring rain in central London ahead of the team’s Euro 2020 clash with England.
Many fans have travelled despite warnings they should not go to London unless they have a match ticket, or a safe place to watch it.
Scotland were only allocated about 2,600 tickets due to Covid rules, and no fan zone has been set up.
The match at Wembley Stadium kicks off at 20:00 and we will no doubt see groups of supporters wearing kilts, Scotland shirts, flags and playing the bagpipes, something previously seen at Leicester Square, King’s Cross and Hyde Park.
Estimates that 20,000 Scotland fans would travel south for the match have been been described as “very conservative” by a London Assembly member.
A dispersal order has been issued for central London, giving the police extra powers to break up groups of people where they believe their behaviour is causing a nuisance, harassment or distress.
There have been no reports of any significant disorder – although there have been videos on social media that appeared to show some fans singing offensive anti-English songs.
Chief Inspector Joe Stokoe, spokesperson for the Met’s policing operation during Euro 2020, said: “We are delighted to be hosting the Euros in London. People have waited a long time for this to take place and we know that everyone is very excited, so we ask members of the public to look after themselves and each other and enjoy the occasion safely and responsibly.
Our officers are here to look after you so please speak to them if you have any concerns. Stay vigilant and report anything suspicious to police, and please be mindful of the weather too, which is not expected to be good.
“There will of course be people in London who won’t be watching the game and we urge you to consider those people and behave respectfully.
“London also remains in a public health crisis. There are government guidelines in place and we ask people to follow these and remain socially distanced.
“We have contingency plans to deal with any number of potential incidents as they arise but my message is clear: if you don’t have ticket to the matches, fan zone or officially booked into a pub, bar or club, please do not come to London – you could end up missing the game.
“Last night we took the precaution of issuing a section 35 dispersal order that is in place until 15:00hrs on Saturday, 19. We have a flexible policing plan in place to reduce the likelihood of crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour.”
As mentioned, a flare up between England and Scotland fans was mocked as the most hilarious yet…
