Andy Robertson feels Scotland's Euro 2020 clash with England is a chance to prove to they are worthy of more respect from their oldest rivals.

The two Home Nations meet on Friday evening in their second Group D fixture with England having beaten Croatia 1-0 in their first and Scotland losing theirs 2-0 to Czech Republic.

Scotland are playing in their first international tournament since the 1998 World Cup, and Robertson feels the fact they have ended a 23-year qualifying drought means they are more respected by England now, but still not enough.

"I think we're probably respected more now because we've qualified for a tournament but we're still not as respected as much as we would all like," he said.

"A chance to play against England is a chance to show people that doubt Scottish football what we can do. We gave them a tough game in 2017 and we'll need the same performance levels as that night."

That 2017 meeting between the sides was a World Cup qualifier in which Scotland led 2-1 going into injury-time only for Harry Kane to score a late equaliser.

Scotland head coach Steve Clarke says their clash with England is a great game to bounce back in after his side's opening Euro 2020 defeat to the Czech Republic

Hampden Park hearts were broken by that moment but Robertson says he has never played in an atmosphere like that one, with the Scots so close to a famous victory courtesy of two Leigh Griffiths goals from free-kicks.

"That England game was definitely the best atmosphere I've played in in terms of a Scotland game," he said. "I've never heard noise like that at Hampden when Griff (Griffiths) put in those free-kicks and I've probably also never heard a stadium go quietly so quickly when Harry Kane equalised.

"They showed they have the quality that day and that they can go to the end but I think we've adapted since that day.

"A lot has changed since then, and has changed in the England squad too. It'll be a tough game, they're one of the favourites to win the tournament and to beat us but if we can get our game plan right I do believe we can get a result."
