watch England vs Scotland live online Euro 2020

England vs Scotland is scheduled for Friday, June 18, at 8 PM BST (9 PM CEST). This Euro 2020 Group D fixture will take place at Wembley Stadium, London. The two nations first met in 1872, making this one of the oldest international rivalries in history. Like most televised sporting events, England vs Scotland will be subject to geographic restrictions. However, you can watch the match from anywhere by using a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

Please keep in mind that we’re only recommending official sources for watching England vs Scotland live online. We don’t think it’s fair to cover unlicensed streams which tend to be lower resolution with excessive lag. Indeed, some of these unofficial sources even get taken offline for violating copyright. You can save all this stress by sticking with official sources, some of which even let you watch England vs Scotland for free.

England vs Scotland will only be available to stream on region-locked platforms. To continue watching your home streaming service while traveling abroad, you’ll need a VPN.

How to watch England vs Scotland live online with a VPN

When you use a VPN, your internet traffic is encrypted. This allows you to browse securely and anonymously. What’s more, connecting to a VPN server provides you with a different IP address. You can then use this to access geo-restricted platforms and their content (such as the England vs Scotland match).

Here’s how to live stream England vs Scotland using a VPN:

  1. Sign up with a reputable VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN. However, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are reliable and affordable alternatives for streaming.
  2. Next, you’ll need to download and install the VPN app that’s compatible with your device. The above VPNs also offer Chrome and Firefox browser extensions.
  3. Log in to the VPN app and connect to a server in the country of the streaming platform you’re trying to unblock (such as the UK to access ITV Hub).
  4. Now you can go to the streaming platform in question and sign in (or sign up as necessary). All of its content should now be available in your location.
  5. Didn’t work? Try clearing your browser’s cache and cookies before refreshing your browser. Alternatively, change your IP address by connecting to another server.

The Euro 2020 match between England and Scotland will air live. It’s for this reason that we recommend you test your VPN with your chosen platform ahead of time. If you have any trouble, you then have time to contact your VPN’s customer support who may be able to provide further assistance.


NordVPN is offering a fully-featured risk-free 30-day trial if you sign up at this page. You can use the VPN rated #1 for Euro 2020 with no restrictions for a month. This is ideal if you happen to be on holiday during the tournament. 

There are no hidden terms - just contact support within 30 days if you decide NordVPN isn't right for you and you'll get a full refund. Start your NordVPN trial here.

How to watch England vs Scotland (Euro 2020) on UK TV

UK flag Union Jack

One of the very best options for watching England vs Scotland live online is ITV Hub. That’s because, unlike some streaming options, you can watch for free. In order to do so, you’ll need an ITV Hub account. This asks you to provide your name, email address, date of birth, and UK postcode (any UK postal code is accepted). A UK TV license is also required although there’s no actual verification process in place to check that you have one. Note that viewers in Scotland can use STV Player instead.

ITV Hub and STV Player are only available in the UK. To live stream England vs Scotland from abroad, you’ll need to connect to a VPN server in the UK. You’ll then have a UK IP address capable of unblocking the game. NordVPN works with ITV Hub and even includes a 30-day money-back guarantee. As such, you’ll be able to use it risk-free. If you change your mind, just make sure you request a refund before the conclusion of the 30-day period.

Below you’ll find more options for streaming England vs Scotland live online. If we don’t mention your country, you can always check UEFA’s list of official broadcast partners. Euro 2020 will be broadcast in most countries.


US flag - flag of the USA

There’s no free broadcast option available in the US but it will be shown on ESPN. If you’re from the US and have a cable TV subscription, you’ll therefore be able to watch England vs Scotland online at no extra cost. To do so, go to ESPN and sign in via your TV provider (you’ll need to use the same login details you use with your cable TV subscription).

You can watch ESPN cable-free if you subscribe to one of the following TV streaming services: FuboTV ($64.99 USD/month), Hulu with Live TV ($64.99 USD/month), Sling TV ($35/month), and YouTube TV ($64.99/month). While all of the above are region-locked and only available in the US, you can access them from anywhere with a VPN. This requires connecting to a server in the US and getting a US IP address.



The good news for football fans in Australia is that Optus Sport is showing every single Euro 2020 match. Existing Optus Sport subscribers can simply sign in and watch England vs Scotland at no extra charge. If you’re not with Optus Sport, you do have the option of purchasing a digital-only subscription which costs $14.99 AUD/month.

Due to copyright and licensing, Optus Sport content is only available to be streamed in Australia. However, you can access it from anywhere with an Australian IP address.


Canadian Flag

If you’re in Canada, you’ll have two options for streaming England vs Scotland. The first is TSN which, if you have a cable TV subscription, you’ll be able to watch at no added cost. However, it’s also possible to watch cable-free by purchasing a one-month digital pass which costs $19.99 CAD. The other option is TVA which is actually free to watch although it’s worth knowing that it’s French-language.

Of course, to access either TSN or TVA, you’ll need a Canadian IP address which you can get by connecting to a VPN with servers in Canada.
