Steve Clarke’s side had a disappointing beginning to their European Championship campaign, with a brace from Czech Republic star Patrick Schick putting Scotland to the sword. However, their Euro 2020 campaign is not over yet, and there is no game more important to Scots than the clash with the Auld Enemy.
It’s been a full four years since the sides played. Two late memorable Leigh Griffiths free kicks sent Hampden Park wild, before England hitman Harry Kane broke Scottish hearts with a last minute leveller. This Euro 2020 clash promises to be high stakes with the away side desperate for points and the host looking to guarantee their passage to the last 16 of the competition.
The biggest worry for Scotland fans is the potential absence of star player Kieran Tierney.
The former Celtic youngster was a notable absentee from the opening game defeat to Czech Republic and is touch and go heading into Friday’s game. The Arsenal full back was in terrific form for his club side last season and is seen as a vital cog in Steve Clarke’s team.
There is also a debate on whether Clarke should make a change in the nets, with many pundits citing regular number one David Marshall as the man to blame for the Czech’s second goal on Monday. Craig Gordon could be handed his first start at an international tournament at the age of 38.
For the home side, they’ll be without back-up goalkeeper Dean Henderson, with the Manchester United star forced to pull out of the squad due to injury, while there’s worries surrounding Jack Grealish, with the Aston Villa star struggling with a knock.
Here’s how to ensure you don’t miss a kick.
