The taking of the knee is a gesture synonymous with the political movement ‘Black Lives Matter’ and was adopted by the Premier League and FA following the tragic and senseless killing of George Floyd.

However, while fans remain split on whether or not footballers should be participating in the gesture, many continue to question the actual change happening when it comes to discrimination – of all forms.

Gareth Southgate and his England squad are set to continue to ‘take the knee’, once this summer’s Euros kick off this week.

However, one team that will not be participating in the Three lion’s Group D rivals Scotland.

That’s according to a recent report from the Guardian, who claims the Scottish national team have decided not to ‘take the knee’ pre-match and will instead stand opposite their opponents.

Although Scotland’s decision will see them stand – the team say they remain committed to eradicating discrimination but manager Steve Clark insisted that the gesture itself “maybe a little bit diluted”.

England is set to play Scotland on Friday 18th June at 20:00 (UK time).
