Probably because playing England is Scotland's World Cup final which means you're well up for it.

In England, Scotland are seen as just another team like Lithuania, insignificant and of no consequence.

Complete bullshit, the English I know hate us but rate us as a half decent side at least.

FFS you'll all be looking out yer skirts to fire on and watching the sound of music for your wee song about a deer.

I hope yae have a shite trip, get scudded and maybe a broken leg for Broon. The seville calculator will estimate 105,000 cross dressing ginger guys where in London.

Hopefully both teams lose and Rooney and Broon kill each other by running intae each other

SCOTLAND are on their way to Wembley for the first time since the famous 1-0 win against England in 1999.

The Scottish FA is delighted to announce that Craig Levein’s squad will resume the Auld Enemy rivalry on Wednesday, August 14, 2013 as part of The Football Association’s 150th anniversary celebrations.

Don Hutchison was the goalscoring hero the last time Scotland took on England, in the UEFA Euro 2000 play-off. Now, as part of preparations for the second half of FIFA World Cup Qualifying Group A, Scotland will play in the refurbished Wembley Stadium for the first time.

The National Team Coach, Craig Levein, believes his squad will relish the challenge of this historic fixture.

He said: “For any Scotland supporter, player or coach, Scotland versus England is the ultimate contest: it really is as good as it gets. I am thrilled that we have reached agreement with The FA to play at Wembley as part of their 150th Anniversary celebrations and I am sure the supporters will be there in their tens of thousands.

“Our match against Brazil at the Emirates Stadium in London last year was a tremendous spectacle and I was overwhelmed by the support we had that day. This is an even more mouth-watering prospect for all concerned and the players will be desperate to record another famous victory at Wembley.

“It will also be the best test possible before we resume our FIFA World Cup Qualifying campaign next year.”

Roy Hodgson, England National Team Coach, added:

“I am privileged to be manager of England at UEFA Euro 2012 and it will be another huge honour to lead our nation out against our oldest rivals. For us, England v Scotland is one of the finest fixtures in international football and I know what this game means to both sets of supporters.

“It will be a fitting part of The FA’s 150th anniversary celebrations and the supporters, the team and my coaching staff all look forward to welcoming Scotland to Wembley Stadium next year.”

England and Scotland are international football’s oldest opponents. They met in the first official match ever played.

The original staging of this fixture took place at the ground of the West of Scotland Cricket Club at Partick, on Saturday, 30 November 1872. In the previous month The FA Committee had formally agreed to send a representative team, “in order to further the interests of The Association in Scotland”.

Bell’s Life saw it as “one of the jolliest, one of the most spirited and most pleasant matches that has ever been played according to Association rules”. There was a crowd of nearly 4000 and it finished in a 0-0 draw.

The teams have now met on 110 occasions. England has won 45 times, Scotland 41 times and there have been 24 draws.

Scotland’s ‘Wembley Wizards’ were 5-1 winners in 1928 but an England side defeated Scotland 9-3, also at Wembley, to clinch the British Championship trophy in 1961. A colossal attendance of 149,547, still a British record, saw Scotland win 3-1 at Glasgow’s Hampden Park in 1937.

Details on how supporters can roar Scotland to victory at Wembley will be confirmed shortly, with exciting packages that will guarantee your visit to Wembley and your unique seat for all Scotland’s home matches in FIFA World Cup Qualifying Group A against Croatia, Serbia, Belgium, Macedonia and Wales

Regardless of what folk say, the English see us as big rivals.

They only plays Germany in their last game at the old Wembley because they didn't wish for it to go down in the record books that Scotland did the job there.

A wee invasion of London to occur.

Ghana had 27,000 tickets... wonder if Scotland will get as many.

It does amuse me how Scots get so excited about that 1-0 Wembley victory - even though England won 2-1 on aggregate and prevented Scotland qualifying for Euro 2012.

In England, Scotland are seen as just another team like Lithuania, insignificant and of no consequence.

So, as you see it - If England were Rangers, then Germany would be Celtic and Scotland would be Aberdeen?

Erm it was Euro 2000 mate!!

I think it's more the fact Scotland were written off and absolutely battered them that night. Still can't believe Seamans save.

Apart from the 3-0 win at the piggery when he scored 2, don't think I've ever seen Neil McCann have a better game.

Our country of 5m population against a country of 57m official statistics ..........

England 45 wins against Scotlands 41 wins .

Shows how bad the English are ...........

No it doesn't. It shows how petty you are. Your small population is hardly a relevant factor, other countries with small populations still surpass the levels of Scotland.
