England travel to Scotland for an International Friendly fixture scheduled at Celtic Park on Tuesday.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off- set for 8pm GMT. Live coverage is on ITV 1. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Scotland welcome England to Celtic Park on Tuesday for a match which is dubbed as a friendly, but is unlikely to be one between the long time rivals.

The Scots come into this game brimming with confidence following a 1-0 win over Ireland in their Euro qualifier game and could possibly qualify for Euro 2016 after a good start that has seen them pick up seven points in their first four games.

Gordon Strachan's men will be looking for revenge, as the last time they met in August 2013, England came from behind to win 3-2 at Wembley. That was the first meeting between the sides since 1999.

The Scotland boss will make changes to his team from the Ireland game, but is going into the game to win and will hope his players step up and bring home a win, something that they have not achieved since 1985.

Meanwhile, England also come into the game on the back of four consecutive victories in their European qualifiers and will look at continuing their winning streak against their long time rivals.

There will be nothing more sweeter than getting a positive result in the back yard of their fierce rivals. Manager Roy Hodgson has revealed that he will make changes to his team that beat Slovenia 3-1 on Saturday and striker Saido Berahino could make his debut for England.

This game is a must win for both manager's as it will give their teams the much needed confidence boost for the rest of the season.

This is the 112<sup>th time that England and Scotland are facing each other, and the Scots will want to end their run of losses and pick up their first win in 29 years.

The atmosphere at Celtic Park is going to be intimidating for the Three Lions and it could play a part in the final result of the game.

What Managers Say

Gordon Strachan: "[The players] have done great, absolutely fantastic... We might try something different in terms of our shape, but listen, we've got to go on and win it, that's what we've got to try and do. Everyone in the squad would like to have a game but I want to win it. That is the priority. I'd love to give everyone a touch of it; especially the guys who have been here the whole ten days."

Roy Hodgson: "We will take the game very seriously. Please don't get the impression that I don't take the game seriously and don't have a lot of respect for it because I do. But that's the same for every game, to be fair. That was the case with Norway and Denmark in recent friendlies because that's the way we operate. I make it clear to the players that you don't get many international possibilities, whether you are playing San Marino or whether you are playing Argentina or Germany or Brazil."
