Who will you back in the Euro cham­pi­onships?

Fans hop­ing it will be goals ga­lore in France

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Mur­ray Spooner

With the UEFA Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships set to start on Fri­day, the buzz around the tour­na­ment is in full swing- or so we thought.

Per­haps it was be­cause Scot­land failed yet again to qual­ify for a major tour­na­ment or be­cause some had no in­ter­est in the sport, but many res­i­dents were un­aware that the com­pe­ti­tion was start­ing in only a few days’ time.

The Re­former, how­ever, took to the streets to find out who their read­ers would be back­ing or if they had a favourite to put their money on.

Stu­art Abercrombie from Burn­side said: “I am sup­port­ing any­body but Eng­land. I would like to see Ger­many win it be­cause I like the way they play foot­ball.”

Ruther­glen’s Jim Mul­hol­land was un­aware the com­pe­ti­tion was even tak­ing place this month but thought Slo­vakia had a chance of win­ning.

“I didn’t know it was on but I’d pick Slo­vakia be­cause Le­ices­ter won the English Premier League and that shows any­thing can hap­pen.”

El­iz­a­beth McAl­lis­ter from Ruther­glen also tipped the Ger­mans, due to her lik­ing of a top Euro­pean man­ager.

She said: “If I had to choose a team it would be Ger­many be­cause I like Jur­gen Klopp. He is a great man­ager for Liver­pool.”

Mal­colm Doig of Burn­side added: “I’ve not got a pref­er­ence be­cause my team didn’t make it... again.

“I don’t know who is go­ing to win but I hope there is some good games and lots of goals.”
