    The atmosphere at Wembley for England v Scotland did not disappoint.

    It was an historic occasion: England playing Scotland at an international tournament for the first time since Euro 1996. The venue: Wembley.

    The match ended honours even and Scotland might have been happier with the performance on the night, while England are still in a strong position in the group. Either way, the fans of both home nations certainly added to the occasion.

    At Euro 1996, Paul Gascoigne scored a sublime goal after flicking the ball over Colin Hendry and thus was born the infamous 'dentist's chair' celebration – a reference to a controversial night out for the England team involving a swivel chair and a bottle of vodka.
