EXCLUSIVE: England and Scotland will go head-to-head at Wembley Stadium on Friday, June 18 in the second group game of the Euro 2020 tournament – but one side have already won the battle of the hotels.

The Three Lions head into the Euros next week already one down against Scotland – when it comes to hotel stars.

But the great news for both countries as well as Wales is the Euros are expected to bring a £1billion boost to Britain’s pandemic-hit economy.

The footie bonanza kicks off next Friday.

England’s first game against Croatia at Wembley is on Sunday and they face the Scots on June 18.

Experts predict a month long beer and barbecue spending frenzy. Beer sales alone are expected bring in more than £700million for Covid-hit pubs. And millions more will be spent on food, drink, merchandise and TVs – booting the total past the billion pound mark.

It’ll be a much-needed boost for embattled high streets reeling from months of lockdowns and restrictions.

Emma McClarkin of the British Beer and Pub Association said: “The Euros are a chance for people to get back to their local as they support the home nations.”

The Centre for Economics and Business Research reckons Brits will splash out £720million in bars – £104million more than would have been spent if the tournament was not being played.
