England fans face beer drought in Cologne after Scotland fans drink pubs dry

ENGLAND fans face a beer drought in Cologne after Scotland’s Tartan Army fans drank bars dry – knocking back a million pints in three days.

A record-breaking army of at least 50,000 Three Lions supporters have begun arriving in the historic city for the crunch clash with Slovenia tomorrow.

But bars are struggling to restock after 100,000 thirsty Auld Enemy drinkers drained the city when the Scots’ drew 1-1 draw with Switzerland last week.

A manager at Cologne’s Corkonian Irish pub, on the main Alter Markt square, said: “The Scotland fans drank everything – beer, Guinness and vodka. Our cellar was emptied.

“It was the same at other bars, with record beer sales – even more than carnival.

“Now we’re all now trying to get more deliveries from breweries to get drinks for England fans.”

A staff member at Papa Joe’s Biersalon, also on the square, said: “The Scotland fans showed us how much they could drink.

“Our supplies are low and we need more beer so the England fans don’t miss out.”

England fans are now gearing up to rise to the challenge – and out booze their rivals ahead of Tomorrow’s 8pm kick-off.

A record English surge is expected as Cologne is the closest Euro 2024 host city to Channel ferry ports.

England fans were last night dreading a draw as much as a defeat against Slovenia – as it could put us on a collision course with new tournament favourites, Germany.

Mathematicians say if not a win – which will secure last 16 game against a third-placed team – that England are better to concede goals and lose rather than draw with Slovenia.

Draw would mean England finish as runners-up in group, facing Germany in the Round of 16.

But finishing third means England would play Belgium or Portugal in second round.
