England v Scotland Preview, International Friendly, Wednesday 14th August 2013

With the international football in England taking a huge hit lately with the incredibly disappointing displays from both the U21’s in the UEFA European Under-21 Championships and more recently the UEFA Women’s European Championships of which both teams failed to even record a win in the group stages and soon left on the plane home in embarrassing style. It is now left to the men to attempt glory in next years World Cup in Brazil. Although Wednesday nights game is only a friendly the England team will be looking for a win against old local rivals because you can pretty much guarantee Scotland will be looking for a scrap when it comes to the win as nothing would please them more than getting one over England.

Scotland are raring to go for Wednesdays game as they look to pile more embarrassment onto England continuing from the U21’s and Women’s team failures, with the Scottish players describing this game as yet another highlight to their career with playing England at the famous Wembley Stadium. One name in particular is 30 year old  Wigan striker Shaun Maloney who himself has just played at Wembley in the loss against Manchester United in the FA Community Shield in which Wigan lost 2 – 0.

England Team News:

A lot of the talk around the England press is in regards to want away striker Wayne Rooney as although he is said to be injured has still been called up by England coach Roy Hodgson. With the talk now of a rift between club and country manager which has recently been denied by both managers. In other news Chelsea veteran Frank Lampard is very keen to feature against Scotland and insists he is fighting fit and ready for the new season including the England v Scotland friendly if he is selected.

Scotland Team News:

Scotland coach Gordan Strachan will be please to know Celtic captain Scott Brown is over his injury ravaged season and has been recalled to the Scotland squad to face England on Wednesday, on top of that Strachan has also recalled Brown’s team mate Charlie Mulgrew and James Forrest with the addition of striker Kenny Miller from Canadian club Vancouver Whitecaps who is the only player based outside the UK.
Sadly Scotland are still without Manchester United player Darren Fletcher who is still recovering from his bowel operation.

Who Has The Advantage?

Its been a long time since these two locals have met with the last ending with England losing 1-0, as for advantage this on paper look pretty even with the exception of England scoring more goals than the Scots.

Average Goals Per Game?

A solid 12 goals scored in the last 5 head to head matches giving us an average of 2.4 goals per game so I would expect a few goals to fly in come Wednesday evening.

Hard to give the advantage to Scotland here as they have more wins, but with England having not lost any in their last 5 I would have to place the advantage in their hands.
