A number of Scotland fans have been praised for helping clean Leicester Square prior to their Euro 2020 clash with England.

Steve Clarke's side played out a 0-0 draw at Wembley on Friday evening and fans were delighted at the result.

It keeps their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages alive and fans celebrated wildly in the English capital.

Litter covered the entire square and fountain, but some fans took it upon themselves to help out when it mattered.


Images have circulated online of supporters taking to the streets on Friday evening as well as Saturday morning.

One man was approached for an interview by the BBC and told them he wasn't interested, as he was only there to clean.

He did let them film the cleaning up process however.

On the pitch, 20-year-old Billy Gilmour stood out for Scotland in his first professional start for his country.

He refused to be intimidated in midfield and hassled his opponents constantly.

Clarke talked about the Chelsea youngster post-match and labelled him the future of Scottish fooball.

Per Sky Sports he said: "Stephen O'Donnell was exceptional, and Billy was just behind him. It was nice for him to get that start, a big platform, a big player, Billy.

"I've said for a long time he'll be a big part of the future of Scottish football. We know what we've got in the camp, we'll try to manage that and keep a lid on things. Performances like that will do him no harm whatsoever.

"Getting Kieran [Tierney] back into the three and Scott [McTominay] gives us the platform to build from the back. Billy and Callum are both good footballers, we knew coming here we couldn't just sit and defend for 95 minutes, we knew when we had the ball, we had to take care of it and try to create our own chances. That's what we managed to do."

Meanwhile, Gareth Southgate was criticised by England fans for a number of decisions, including substituting Phil Foden and Harry Kane.
