Scotland star John McGinn has pulled out some dance moves at a welcome party for the squad in Germany ahead of Euro 2024.

A video of the Aston Villa midfielder taking part in a traditional Bavarian dance was shared by the Scottish National Team official Twitter account.

Steve Clarke’s men are now in the alpine town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen – the team’s basecamp for the tournament which kicks off on Friday evening.

Soon after checking into the team hotel, the Scots were off to a local hall where they were cheered off the bus by locals and some Tartan Army.

Clarke met mayor Elisabeth Koch and a typical German band accompanied them, the Scotland squad and management team into the Bayernhalle where midfielder McGinn joined three dancers on stage to the delight of everyone in the room.

Clarke and his squad were piped out of the hall but asked about Friday’s game by a local MC, he said: “Obviously in a four-team group with three matches it is very important to get off to a good start.

“We recognise difficult opponents but hopefully Germany find us equally as difficult.

“I thought this would be a special place for a base camp and what a welcome.

“I think you will be fabulous hosts and I hope we can be a fabulous football team.”

Skipper Andy Robertson was also cheered when he said: “Thank you for the warm welcome.

“It has been a long day’s travelling and I think we are all ready for bed but the welcome has been amazing.

“I am sure the locals will be very friendly towards us when we are here and hopefully we can win football matches and keep us here as long as possible.

“We know the fans will come over in their numbers, they will enjoy themselves and they will be respectful and I hope they celebrate us winning games as well.”

Scotland also face Switzerland and Hungary as they seek to get out of the group stages of a major tournament for the first time.
