SCOTLAND will be treated to an impromptu bank holiday this coming Monday if England are beaten by Italy, it has been confirmed.
With Boris Johnson considering an extra day off if England win Euro 2020, Nicola Sturgeon has announced that Scotland will be get a similar bonus holiday if Gareth Southgate’s men suffer a disappointing defeat.
Sturgeon said: “Scotland is the only team that hasn’t lost to England during this whole tournament, so technically a win for Italy is a win for us too.
“It’s not official yet because we don’t want to tempt fate and hand over victory to the Three Lions. But rest assured the wheels are in motion and we’re poised to make it happen the second the ref blows the full-time whistle.
“I expect our exclusive, short-notice holiday might rub England fans up the wrong way, but remember how you booed our national anthem when we went head-to-head? Karma’s a bitch.”
She added: “Actually, a single day might not be enough time for us to process our euphoric joy at England’s defeat. Better make it a whole week just to be safe.”
