WATCH: Alan Pattullo and Mark Atkinson discuss Scotland's defeat and what's next for Steve Clarke's men

The Scotsman’s specialist football editor Mark Atkinson catches up with our Scotland writer Alan Pattullo to pore over the country’s 2-0 defeat to Czech Republic.

Alan was at Hampden Park on Monday to witness Steve Clarke’s men get their Euro 2020 campaign underway.

Patrik Schick's brace has put Scotland in a difficult position going forward as they seek qualification from the group stage for the first time ever.
