Gordon Strachan: Scotland need brains and bravery over brawn against England

Isaac Mcdaniel | 10 June, 2017, 17:45

That win, however, is the Scots' only success in the last eight games between the nations and I expect to see England's superior quality overcome what is sure to be a combative and hardworking Scottish side. "It's definitely something I aspire to do", Kane told reporters at England's St George's Park training base this week.

Law was part of the Scotland squad which reached the 1974 World Cup finals, where the former Manchester United and City forward made the last of his 55 global appearances, having scored 30 goals which remains a record tally alongside Kenny Dalglish. There are certain requirements Kane must fulfil before thinking about a Ballon d'Or.

Following the end of World War I, Wales won the first Home Championships - an annual tournament involving the four United Kingdom nations that began in 1883.

The most likely candidate to take his place would be David Moyes - nearly as uninspiring a choice as voters across the country have had to make over the past few weeks. He was frantically up and down the technical area, barking instructions and motivating his players.

Harry Kane is merely a vice captain of Tottenham Hotspur, but tomorrow he'll wear the captain's armband for his country.

However, to start with Kane needs to get himself on the England scoresheet more often.

"It is the same for Scotland and England - in that 90 minutes, they are the enemy, but after the game, no matter who has won, you go and shake hands". Kane should have Wayne Rooney's all-time England record of 53 in sight... "I have taken a lot of notice of theira season, it has been a great season". In truth, this nearly goes without saying, but for Kane to continue to stay relevant internationally and to challenge for the Ballon d'Or, he needs to be maintaining his phenomenal goal-scoring record.

"It is a great honour to play in these games". Even down to injury.

Now Brown, who managed North End from 2002 to 2004, sees no reason for Gordon Strachan's side to fear England.

New smart speaker expected as Apple kicks off conference
Apple will go head-to-head with rivals Amazon and Google, as the USA tech giant throws its hat into the growing smart home arena. Like other smart speakers, audio information isn't sent to Apple's cloud until this voice command has been issued, Apple said.

"He's a humble and good guy and that's somebody you want to play for", Gibson said.

He said: "We were speaking about it the other day, the "get intae them" kind of theory, which a lot of people in Scotland are desperate for us to do when I meet them as I go about".

"To do that, it isn't just individual".

"If you remember what happened between us at Tottenham, you'll know that there is plenty of history there".

This isn't exactly something in Kane's control.

"It's just so important that we're ruthless and we're clinical, and we take a chance when it comes along - and we've certainly got a goal threat".

"They bring that positivity to the squad".

After calls for the Home Championship to be reintroduced never came to fruition, the rivalry was renewed for the FA's 150th anniversary celebrations as the two countries met for the first time in 14 years - and it had a fairytale finish to boot.
