Southampton football fans are invited to partake in a free pint generously offered by Greene King ahead of Scotland's inaugural match against Germany.

The offer is part of Greene King's initiative to gather fans in their establishments across the nation during the upcoming six-week-endured sport celebrations.

To claim a free drink, between 6pm and 7pm on June 14, visit any of the 800 participating pubs, and say 'For Pub and Country' at the bar.

Ex-player Jimmy Bullard, who said: “It’s no secret that we’re two of the unluckiest footballing nations in Europe. If we don’t go out on penalties then it’s an injury or a refereeing decision, there’s always something.

"But there’s something in the air this summer that makes me think this might just be our year. I can’t wait for the games to get underway and will be at my local Greene King for kick off – see you there!"

The Scholars Arms in Southampton will be taking part in the offer.
