Front Page of The National Backfires leaving Pro indy ref 2 supporters ANGRY.

A SCOTTISH nationalist newspaper has been branded “embarrassing” after urging the country to back Italy in tomorrow’s Euro 2020 final.

The Saturday edition of The National depicted Roberto Mancini as Scottish national hero William Wallace, who triumphed over the English in the late-13th century. Its headline pleaded with Italy’s coach to lead his team to victory to avoid another 55 years of the English “banging on” about an international tournament victory.

The front page quickly attracted fury from many proud Scots who said it made their country seem “small-minded”.
