Des Clarke and guests Jim Smith, Maisie Adam, Val McDermid and Mark Nelson take a look at the funny side of the Euros. It's all about the drama, the incidents and, more importantly, Scotland's chances! We also take a look at what was breaking the news in 1998 and 1996, the last time Scotland made it to the World Cup and the Euros.
