This game may be designated a friendly, but it never is when these two sides play each other. Expect a raucous and intimidating atmosphere at Hampden Park today as Scotland take on England in this international exhibition football fixture.
The old enemies meet again for the Scotland vs England live stream — and you can watch it for FREE from anywhere with a VPN.
England were poor in their Euro qualifier against Ukraine on Saturday. It needed a moment of brilliance from skipper Harry Kane and Kyle Walker to cancel out Oleksandr Zinchenko’s opener. The 1-1 draw means England no longer have a 100% record in their qualifying campaign, adding to the scrutiny manager Gareth Southgate currently faces over his squad selection.
Scotland easily saw off Cyprus in their latest Euro qualifier, winning 0-3. The goals came from Ryan Porteous, John McGinn and Scott McTominey. The Manchester United midfielder has scored six goals this qualifying campaign. He sits on top of the scoring charts with Romelu Lukaku and Rasmus Hojlund. The Tartan Army are now unbeaten in 8 competitive matches, a run that includes notable victories over Spain and Norway.
We may well see some changes to both lineups today, as the managers use a friendly game to give fringe players an opportunity. However, both Southgate and his opposite number Steve Clarke will be desperate to claim a win in a match that means so much to the fans.
The last two meetings between these teams have ended in a draw. Prior to that England had won three times in a row. Scotland’s victory in this fixture was back in November 1999, a 0-1 win at Wembley.
Here's how they line up:
Scotland: Gunn, Hendry, Porteous, Tierney, Hickey, Gilmour, McGregor, Robertson, McTominay, McGinn, Adams.
England: Ramsdale, Walker, Dunk, Guehi, Trippier, Rice, Phillips, Bellingham, Foden, Kane, Rashford.
Who will claim the bragging rights as the teams mark 150 years of rivalry? Read on for all the details you need to watch online from anywhere and potentially for free.
