Scotland vs England
Scotland vs England takes place on Saturday, 10th June 2017.
The match kicks off at 5 pm local time (6 pm Central European Time).
England currently sits top of World Cup Qualifying Group F with Scotland trailing behind in 4th place.
Scotland hasn’t played in a major international tournament since France 1998 and will be hoping to overpower England to improve their chances of qualification.
Ex-Scotland boss Alex McLeish has said Harry Kane will be the man Scotland need to stop to secure victory.
Nathaniel Clyne will be missing from the England squad due to injury but Spurs wonder Deli Ali will continue his position of No.10.
Scotland beat Slovenia in March which will give manager Strachan thought to start with the same starting 11 but with six treble winning Celtic players in his squad they’ll be riding high and will surely feature.
Head to head England have won 48 games, Scotland 41 and there have been 24 draws so it’s by no means a one horse race and both England and Scotland could take victory.
Regardless of who wins you’ll be able to watch all the action live online from anywhere in the world, just click the button below to get yourself a VPN and head over to ITV Player.
