I'd be looking to find a spot for Jim Baxter and John Grieg somewhere in that Scotland team CD.

Not sure Gerrard ever did enough in an England shirt to warrant inclusion.

He played well in the five-one, which you could argue was England's most impressive result. I was struggling with central midfielders, generally, to be honest. Picked him as he played left a few times so would give balance with Matthews on the other side.

Not a bad shout, especially Baxter.

I found this interesting.

They were going to do one for Scotland but didn't think anyone had a spare 24 hours

I backed them to win 4-0. It looks like it will finish 3-0.

I make it now that it's only Lapland, Anglesey and the Vatican that haven't qualified for a tournament more recently than Scotland. 😢

Talking of Scotland, I think they are pretty much guaranteed to be playing Bulgaria in the playoff semis, now.

By the dumbing down international football even Gib and San Marino will reach a major tournament before Scotland's lion begins to growl.

I have heard that the Vatican are big fans of playing with the youngsters.

Euro 2020 draw looks a tad complicated with three potential hosts in the playoffs.

Slightly concerned we could end up with France and Portugal in our group.
