STAR PREVIEW: Scotland v Germany

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he head to head records (below) between Scotland v Germany go back as far as 1929 but if you go back just as far as last Friday there can only be one winner on current form at Hampden Park tonight.

I thought Scotland were woeful against Georgia, losing 1-0 and not having a single shot on target.

Germany, on the other hand, were beginning to look a little more like their old selves with a 3-1 win over Poland and their first two goals scored inside the first 20 minutes.

Both managers have had the luxury of near full squads to choose from.

Germany’s manager Joachim Low said: “Coming to Hampden is a first as a player and a coach. I am greatly looking forward to being there with the unique atmosphere of not just the Scottish players but also the Scottish public, so we are all looking forward to the clash on Monday night. Scotland lost to Georgia but I don’t think that will do their fighting spirit and their passion any damage at all. The crowd will get behind the Scottish team as one man. In the table they have fallen behind Poland and Ireland somewhat so they will give everything they have got.”
