Scotland are massive 250/1 shots to win the trophy at Wembley on July 11, and even progressing from the group would be an achievement – and lucrative for those who fancy the Tartan Army’s chances.

Betway rank Scotland’s chances of winning Group D at 14/1 – the same as the Czech Republic – and behind odds-on favourites England and Croatia (3/1).
