Scotland take on Republic of Ireland on Friday 14th November, 2014, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 2.

The tension before this game has been ugly, frustrating and perpetrated by the staff and ex-players choosing to talk about the decision some men have taken over which nation to represent, of this pair. Those comments are fairly unhelpful ahead of what could be a fractious and angry match, and we can only hope the crowd are more positive about the prospect of good football from these two teams.

If the Scots win the optimism about their chances of qualification will only increase, and Gordon Strachan deserves a lot of praise for the way he’s developed the team in his time so far.
