Croatia take on Scotland on Friday 7th June, 2013, with kickoff at 19:15. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ESPN.

Two draws, four losses and an away match with the joint leaders of Group A shows just how far Scotland still have to travel under Gordon Strachan to restore a semblance of pride to the national side, but in Croatia they aren’t facing a true invincible. The home team should win, but given Scotland a chance to grow as a team and maybe even snatch an improbable point.

At this stage that will make little or no difference in terms of qualifying, but the job is a longer-term one than that, and I’m sure the manager knows that is the case.
