Scots boo Liechtenstein national anthem

Scottish fans booed Liechtenstein’s national anthem because it has the same tune as God Save the Queen, which they understand to be England’s national anthem.

The Scottish Football Association has apologised for the embarrassment, but strangely didn’t apologise to their own fans for the embarrassment of only beating Liechtenstein (pop. 36,000) by only one goal.

    I’m English and I was at Hampden that night with a Scottish friend. I knew the Liechtenstein national anthem had the same tune as God save the Queen. I’m a staunch anti-monarchist and had to have a little chuckle to myself at all these Scots getting themselves worked up over a piece of music.

How do England get away with using God Save the Queen as their national anthem? Unless there has been some act of independence passed, Her Maj is our Queen as well – like it or not – and the anthem belongs to the UK, not just England.
