Tens of thousands of Scots have descended on the streets of Munich ahead of the Euro 2024 opening match against Germany.

The Tartan Army swarmed the city's Marienplatz square on Friday, where they were pictured drinking steins of beer, dancing to a piper and diving into the fountain, awaiting this evening's kick off.

Around 10,000 tickets have been allocated to Scotland's fans to attend the Allianz Arena for the tournament's opener, but some 200,000 kilt-cladded supporters are estimated to have travelled to Munich.
