Stuart McCall keen on regular Scotland-England clash

Scotland coach Stuart ­McCall would like to see the Auld Enemy clashes return on a semi-regular basis – but not the ­annual fixture of the past.

McCall was among Gordon Strachan’s coaching team during Scotland’s 3-2 defeat by England at Wembley on Wednesday in the first meeting of the world’s oldest international rivals for 14 years. Both national associations have discussed a return clash at Hampden, dependent on the qualifying schedule for Euro 2016, and McCall would relish an arrangement to revive the ­fixture, which has not been played on a regular basis since the last Rous Cup in 1989.

The Motherwell manager, who won one of his 40 caps in a Euro 96 defeat at Wembley, said: “I wouldn’t say every year, ­nothing like that, but it passed without any major incidents trouble-wise which is always a major concern. It was just a ­really good atmosphere and everyone enjoyed it, plus you get that competitive edge .”
