​Scottish Football Fan Goes To Kick Table And Completely Misses After Losing Game

A disappointed Scotland fan was seen taking out his frustration on a picnic bench as the team were kicked out of Euro 2020 last night - or at least he tried to, but unfortunately completely missed it. Watch below:


Scotland lost 3-1 against the Croatian side yesterday, leaving them knocked out of the tournament, much to the dismay of many fans.

Some no doubt shed a tear while others downed their pint mournfully, but one bloke decided to vent in a slightly more creative way - taking it out on a nearby picnic bench.

The amusing clip was shared on Twitter by various people, including Burnley fan and podcaster Dave Roberts, who wrote: "The next generation of #SCO players in training for #Euro2024. Watch the guy who tries to kick the edge of the table (and misses!)."

One person tweeted: "If ever a video summed up Scottish football, and Scotland's prowess in international tournaments, this is it."

Another wrote: "Ha, just about sums up Scotland as a whole. What a shambles."

A third added: "Defo given himself whiplash there!! His swede nearly falls off."

And, of course, many others were also saying the same thing - with one quipping: "Fans can't even hit target ffs."

Another agreed: "Hahaha like their football team, kept missing the target!"

Scotland's hopes of progressing through the Euro tournament were dashed when the side took on Croatia yesterday in the Group D decider.

It was the squad's first major tournament since the 1998 France World Cup, but manager Steve Clarke has insisted they won't be leaving it so long next time.

He said after the game: "It is just disappointing that we are out. We wanted to stay in the tournament as long as we could. Disappointed that we haven't managed to get out of the group stage.

"You have to give me tonight to get over that and in a few days we will sit down, we will take stock.

"I will look at my performance and the players' performances and we will look at what we can do better in the future and we will make sure it is not 23 years before we go to the next tournament."

Praising Scotland's opponents, Clarke continued: "Hopefully they will take what you saw from Croatia tonight which is third game experience.

"They knew how to play the third game in a tournament, they were more ready than we were. We couldn't hit the levels of Friday night against England so lots to learn for everybody, head coach included.

"We tried as hard as we could, we tried to get back in even at 2-1 and then conceded a third one from a set play which is disappointing.

"We are disappointed the tournament has ended early for us but we have a lot to be happy about, the way we got there after 23 years.

"We have a lot to be happy about, the way we approached the tournament, we tried to compete, tried to play as well as we could but unfortunately it was not quite good enough to get out the group stage and to the knockout round."
