Michael Owen's Scotland v England World Cup qualifier prediction

Michael Owen's Scotland v England World Cup qualifier prediction

This afternoon's World Cup qualifier is plied with significance as well as risk, both on and off the pitch.

"Obviously the final decision is made by the manager and the team performed very well in the last game against Slovenia at Hampden so it is going to be tough".

But Strachan can only influence what is happening on the field.

"It would be stupid of me not to use that enthusiasm and that run of games they're on and the pride they've got in themselves", said Strachan of Celtic's triple trophy-winners.

The game is one of the biggest events in this year's sporting calendar, with £10million expected to be bet on the match Bookmaker William Hill says 72% of punters are backing England to win, with 20% backing the boys in blue. But I really do believe.

Here, we consider how England can get the most out of the prolific forward.

Brown has spent more than 10 years at Celtic and is comfortable with his decision to stay in Scotland. Some of the more intriguing players to watch will be players who play in the Premier League like James Morrison, James McArthur and Robert Snodgrass.

"That's been really tough and something that will take a long time to get over it". "We go into games expecting to do well".

"[Gary] Cahill had one from there and it went looping in".

It's taken almost three complete seasons for the European stage to sit up and take notice of Harry Kane, but after scoring over 20 goals in each of those years, he's finally beginning to gain significant recognition, with £100m fees touted for those clubs linked with his signature.

"I've seen it all before".

"We need people who think clearly and make good decisions".

Harry Kane believes the years have done nothing to tiresome the rivalry between England and Scotland ahead of Saturday's World Cup qualifier between the old foes in Glasgow. The Spurs striker, pictured, has struggled to replicate his club form on the worldwide stage. Morrison has scored at Wembley [in the 2013 friendly] and I think he'll play.

"He might, if that happens at the weekend, bring his average up".

"I want to prove to everyone here and everyone across the world that I'm one of the best strikers out there". That's a different thing altogether.

"It would mean everything to me", said the 31-year-old.

He was mainly used in wide positions by Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho this season, before a season-ending injury to Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic saw him moved to a central role, where he thrived.

There will be around 50,000 for Saturday's World Cup qualifier in a stadium that has been revamped since McGhee's playing days but the former Celtic and Aberdeen striker is sure it could be the platform for another famous occasion. Although the hosts led twice in the opening 15 minutes, Scotland raced into a 4-2 half-time lead and looked well on their way to another Home Championships title.
