It has been reported that Scottish fans could be breathalysed when Scotland are due to face Gibraltar in Portugal. Supporters will be refused entry if they are deemed ‘too drunk.’
Scotland play Gibraltar in their final Euro 2016 qualifying game next month and have sold over 8,000 tickets which will bring travelling Scots to the Algarve.
If Scotland can steer clear of defeat against Poland at Hampden and Ireland lose to World Champions Germany, the game will provide the Scots with a chance of making the play-off.
Gibraltar FA chiefs have handed a warning to fans travelling to the game that Portuguese police may breathalyse supporters who are under the influence of alcohol and refuse them entry to the game.
“Anyone noticeably under the influence of drink or drugs will not be afforded entry into the stadium. Please be aware that not only is this a Stadium/UEFA requirement but it is also law in Portugal.”
The Gibraltar team will be playing for recognition and pride rather than any expectation of victory.
