AS Sunday rolls around, all eyes are on our neighbours from south of the Border as England get their Euro 2024 campaign under way.

The English team head into the tournament as one of the favourites to win the whole thing.

Gareth Southgate’s men were within touching distance of the trophy four years ago but blew a 1-0 lead against Italy in the final and then lost on penalties.

However, Serbia will have something to say about the new so-called “English golden generation” as they face off against them in their opening game.

Stephen Flynn was the lucky person to get England in the sweepstake and, when he learned his fate, quipped: “That’s why I never gamble."

Flynn has chosen Community Food Initiatives North East, which aims to improve people’s health and wellbeing, help the environment and tackle poverty, as his charity.

Gillian Mackay will be hoping the Serbian team will be up for the challenge and can deliver an early upset of the tournament.

Mackay has yet to select a charity, but if Serbia win the sweepstakes, the prize will be going to a worthy cause.

Elsewhere, Robert Lewandowski’s Poland will take on Virgil van Dijk’s Netherlands in a game that is sure to entertain any neutral.

Kelly Given (above) and Ian Blackford, however, will also have some stake in the match.

Blackford has drawn the Netherlands, and his selected charity is Lucky2BHere which helps train people on how to use defibrillators and emergency life-support training across Scotland.

Kelly got Poland and has chosen Medical Aid for Palestinians who offer medical services in the West Bank, Gaza and Lebanon while advocating for Palestinians' rights to health and dignity.

The third of Sunday’s matches is Slovenia against Denmark who are in England and Serbia's group.

Cheering for the Danes will be Alistair Heather who will be hoping to go all the way to secure the prize money for his charity the Dundee United Community Trust, who help tackle a range of social issues like poverty and loneliness in the local community.

On the other side is Chris McEleny who will be hoping that Slovenia can cruise past Heather’s team and help win the prize money for Alzheimer Scotland, which provides support and information to people with dementia and their carers and families.
