Scotland fans remain hopeful despite brutal hammering from Germany

After months of anticipation and three days of partying in Munich, the end result was a devastating blow for the Tartan Army.

The Scots in the city were hurting, and it hung in the air come Saturday morning.

Those who had spent their hard-earned cash travelling across to Germany were feeling let down by the performance on the pitch.

Despite that though the supporters were still remaining hopeful that we can make it through the group.

Even as we travelled home from the fanzone on Friday night there was an emotional scene as the proud Scots on the train belted out the national anthem after watching the drubbing.

On Saturday, as we boarded a train through the rolling hills en route to Cologne, optimistic Scots turned out dressed in their kilts as they prepared for the second leg of our Euro journey.

It's certainly not over yet - and if the Scotland players are needing any motivation ahead of our next two games they should simply look at the scenes on the streets of Germany.

There's certainly no questioning the passion of the fans - the players just need to find theirs too.
