Southgate relishing Scotland 'challenge'

By Ryan Walker

The England manager has been speaking pre-match on Channel 4 and has admitted tonight will be a ‘hostile’ test for the Three Lions.

Southgate stated: ‘There’s so much histroy to the game and a great test for us in a really hostile environment. Scotland are playing well and it’s a really good challenge.

‘We are trying to find the balance of stability, expeirence and we have to do that in the course of the next few months but also some freshness in the team so a lot of different objectives.’

On the 150th anniversary of the oldest rivalry in world football, we have delved into the Daily Mail archives to bring you these classic images of Scotland versus England at Hampden Park.

Take a look for yourself below ahead of kick-off.

Is this Scotland's best chance to beat England?

By Ryan Walker

Scotland haven’t beaten England in this tie since before the turn of the Millenium, but tonight is probably their best chance since then.

The hosts have plenty of Premier League firepower in their ranks and are one of Europe’s most in-form nations after winning their opening five European Championship qualifying matches.

Their midfield boasts a plethora of talent in McTominay, McGinn and Gilmour and although it perhaps isn’t at the same level as England’s midfield, they have shown they are more than capable of scoring.

Southgate’s decision to play with a double midfield pivot with Rice and Phillips shows England are wary of the danger and Jude Bellingham will be the man responsible for adding creativity from deep.

Steve Clarke has named an unchanged team from the side that eased past Cyprus in a 3-0 victory last time out.

Scotland supporters will be looking to Manchester United’s Scott McTominay to continue his terrific goalscoring run that see’s him joint lead the European Championship qualifying goalscoring charts with six strikes so far.

England will also have to be wary of the threats posed from midfield by Billy Gilmour and John McGinn.

STARTING XI: Gunn, Hickey, Robertson, McTominay, Tierney, McGinn, McGregor, Adams, Hendry, Gilmour, Porteous


By Ryan Walker

England manager Gareth Southgate has named a strong line-up to take on Scotland, but it perhaps isn’t the strongest he could have named.

There are rare starts for Lewis Dunk and Kalvin Phillips, while Phil Foden is also pulled back into the fray. Declan Rice will partner Phillips in a midfield pivot that shows Southgate is wary of Scotland’s attack.

Jordan Henderson and Harry Maguire both drop to the bench while Bukayo Saka joins them amongst the subs as well.

STARTING XI: Ramsdale, Walker, Guehi, Dunk, Trippier, Rice, Phillips, Foden, Bellingham, Rashford, Kane.
