Scotland the Brave!

We'll be coming,We'll be coming
We'll be coming down the road!
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army boys,We'll be coming down the road!

In the toughest qualifying group of all for the European Championships next summer, Scotland sit top, ahead of World Cup winners Italy,runners up France and quarter finalists,Ukraine!

We beat France AGAIN tonight!! 1-0 in Paris (James McFadden 68mins)! I can hardly believe it! We came to France only five short years ago and were soundly thrashed 5-0.There was never a danger of a repeat.

It's still a tough task to qualify as Scotland always seem to find a way to blow it, but this will probably go down as one of our best ever results! In fact it is THE best result ever!!

Not bad for a country with a population of five million!!

I thought the teletext had got it wrong - Scotland actually won?
Really?

Congrats Acorn. Very nice result for your fellow countrymen.

Now if they can hold that top position and actually qualify.......

A wee cracker.

Just a pity Northern Ireland found their usual cock up in a good position in their group. Something the Scots are used to I know.

Miasdad:Did you not post that comment the last time we beat the World Cup runners up 1-0?!!

Cheers BM.I don't actually think we will qualify despite last nights amazing result but I hope I'm wrong!

Aye ,sorry to see the Northern Irish struggle Krons.My old Granny was from Portadown so I have a soft spot for them.
