Scotland Drawn Against England In Mouthwatering World Cup Qualifying Draw

Scotland Drawn Against England In Mouthwatering World Cup Qualifying Draw

Scotland will take on England in qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Gordon Strachan’s men were drawn in Group F alongside Slovenia, Slovakia, Lithuania, Malta and the Auld Enemy England.

It’ll be the first time the oldest international will be played competitively since the play-off round for Euro 2000, where Kevin Keegan’s England beat Craig Brown’s Scotland 2-1 on aggregate.

However, the two sides have met in friendlies twice in the last two years, with England winning 3-2 at Wembley and 3-2 and Parkhead last Novemeber.

In Group A, one of France, Holland or Zlatan won’t be heading for Russia after a disastrous draw for Sweden, whilst Spain will take on Italy in Group G.

In other groups, Ireland and Wales will square off in Group D, with Northern Ireland staring at the daunting task of coming up against Germany and Czech Republic in Group C.

So, what do you think? It’s certainly an exciting draw for Scotland but will we qualify? We reckon Gordon Strachan will fancy his chances of nabbing a spot in the top two.
