On the eve of Scotland's long-awaited return to a major tournament, Tennents Lager is helping football fans get ready for a good night's sleep with a bedtime story from passionate Scotland fan, Martin Compston. 

The story titled, '23 Years In The Making' tells of Scotland's return to the big stage in the hopes of calming any pre-match nerves kicking in across the country.

The Line of Duty star starts: "On a warm summer's day in France..." reflecting on the Scotland's Men's Team's last appearance at a major finals back in 1998.

Before looking back miserably on the beginning of a "tournament drought" that no one could have foreseen.

The story recounts the highs, the lows, the joy, and the all too familiar pain of following Scotland.

However, it does talk of "a new chapter that sees us back where we belong, on the big stage with a team 5 million strong."

Before closing the book the Scottish actor delivers the rallying cry, "C'mon Scotland, we're made for this."

Compston then urges fellow supporters to rest up for the "big day tomorrow."

He delivers a final thought to send Scots off to sleep with a smile on his face: "How will the story end? We'll need to wait and see, but remember, sometimes dreams come true...even at Wembley."

Fans can watch Martin Compston recite the bedtime story on Tennent's Lager social media channels.

The video will be available from 6pm this evening ahead of the national team's match against the Czech Republic at Hampden tomorrow.

The actor said: "It's taken a while, but we're finally here. It's the night before Scotland takes on Europe and anticipation is at an all-time high for what lies ahead tomorrow. 

"I remember the same night in 1998, and it feels exactly the same - the build up, the pre-match nerves and hopes building as we get set for the match.

"Wherever you're watching; at home, in the pub with a pint of Tennent's, or for a lucky few, at Hampden - we've been waiting 23 years for this match to come, and only one thing is certain. 

"We're made for this."

Cameron Matthews, Tennent's Senior Brand Manager, said: "23 years is a long time to wait, and despite the past six months feeling like another 23 years, the time has finally come. 

"Tennent's has stood side by side with the Tartan Army for almost 50 years, and we know that supporting Scotland can put you through the emotional wringer.

"But it's been so long since we've had to deal with pre-match nerves we just had to call in Martin's soothing tones to ease us off to sleep.

"As he says, we'll need to wait and see what tomorrow brings, but as a nation we're made for this."
