Scotland have a very important friendly game this evening against Northern Ireland before their next European Championship qualification game against Gibraltar.

Scotland boss Gordon Strachan has some very talented players at his disposal and it will be interesting to see the tactics and setups he goes with in both games.

Scotland haven’t played a game since November last year when they were beaten 3-1 by England, which would have created a bitter feeling for Strachan, the players and the supporters.

This is a good chance for the side to put on a show against another home nation and work things to their advantage, as they look to build some form and momentum up to get heading in the right direction.

There is good young talent and plenty of experience in this team and it will be interesting to see if the players on show this evening can replicate the form they have been showing at club level and make an impression on the biggest stage where the exposure and pressure is just that little bit more intense.
