We at Empire of the Kop are hoping to see Scotland progress deeply in the Euros – just as we are all the home nations.
Liverpool have a representative in the England squad in the form of club captain Jordan Henderson.
The Reds have a couple of men playing for Wales this summer too, with Neco Williams and Harry Wilson both called up.
Xherdan Shaqiri, Diogo Jota, Thiago Alcantara, Ozan Kabak and Gini Wijnaldum are also representing their nations this summer.
