A petition has been set up calling for an annual friendly match between Germany and Scotland.

The petition, directed at The German Football Association (Deutscher Fußball-Bund), has received over 2,000 signatures since being set up on Thursday.

It was created by Berlin native and Germany supporter Max Kirchi to "celebrate the German-Scottish friendship".

Explaining the decision to set up the petition, he wrote: "If you look at the pictures from the last few days in Germany, you can see the connection between the two countries and their fans.

"Be it in Munich at the fan festivals, the past few days on the fan miles in Germany, or simply in everyday life, this bond is surprising and shows mutual respect.

"For this reason, we suggest to the DFB that they hold a traditional friendly match every year during the summer international break, which gives fans the opportunity to exchange ideas, go to pubs together and celebrate the friendship between the two countries."

It comes after Scotland were on the receiving end of a 5-1 mauling by Germany in Munich last Friday in the Euro 2024 opener.

It is estimated as many as 200,000 fans made the trip to Munich despite the fact only a small fraction of the Tartan Army had tickets to watch the match at the Allianz Arena.

On Wednesday, Steve Clarke's side secured a nervy 1-1 draw against Switzerland to keep alive hopes of progressing in the tournament.

Meanwhile Germany became the first side to make it to the knockout stage at Euro 2024 after Jamal Musiala and Ilkay Gundogan fired them to a 2-0 Group A victory over Hungary.
