But what is the overall head-to-head record between England and Scotland?

England vs Scotland head-to-head

England edge Scotland in the head-to-head stakes.

In 114 meetings, the Three Lions have 48 wins, the Scots have 41 and 25 have ended in a draw.

In recent years however, England have enjoyed near total dominance of games between the two sides, which have become less frequent.

Since 1990, the Three Lions have won five, drawn one and lost one against the Scots.

Scotland’s victory came at Wembley when they won 1-0 in a Euro 2000 qualifying play-off, but it wasn’t enough to prevent England going through 2-1 on aggregate.

Most of Scotland’s success in this fixture came before World War 2 when they won 29 of 63 games compared to just 19 England wins.

England vs Scotland head-to-head (international tournaments)

England and Scotland have actually met just once at an international tournament.

That game was, of course, England’s 2-0 win at Euro 96.

However, the sides have met plenty of times in qualifying for international competitions.

That includes their last meeting at Hampden when Harry Kane secured a 2-2 draw for England in the last minute after two Leigh Griffiths free kicks for the Scots.

Famously Scotland beat England 3-2 at Wembley in 1967, a year after the Three Lions had won the World Cup, in Euro 68 qualifying.

However, it was England who would progress to the tournament after holding out for a 1-1 draw at Hampden in front of 135,000 people a year later.
