What a job Steve Clarke has done with Scotland and how good is it to see Scotland back in a major tournament since 1996 s long time and we can’t wait for the England game. Steve Clarke has told the Daily Record what advise Sir Alex Ferguson has given him though.
“Sir Alex has said not to focus too much on the England game and I think he’s right,” Clarke said, via Daily Record. “We have to give equal focus to all three games from Czech Republic, England, Croatia, in that order.
“We have to get enough points to qualify from the group because we want to create more history. We want to be the first men’s national team to qualify for a knockout stage.
“The game at Wembley will be a fantastic occasion. It’s the historic game – England v Scotland. But we won’t be getting hung up too much about it. We will concentrate on every game as they come and treat all our opponents with massive respect.
“We’ll be underdogs in all three games, but underdogs with a fighting chance. That’s how we’ll be approaching the tournament.”
