Host Germany made a smashing start to their quest for a record fourth European Football Championship title by slamming Scotland 5-1 at the Football Arena in Munich.

Jamal Musiala, Kai Havertz, Nicklas Fullkrug, Florian Wirtz and Emre Can were on target who conceded when defender Antonio Rudiger scored an own goal.

Defending champions Italy will open their defense tomorrow against Albania, Spain versus Croatia and Hungary against Switzerland.
