and live on Freeview channel 276
Football’s oldest international rivals will take centre stage at Hampden Park as England face Scotland in a friendly which celebrates the 150th anniversary of the first clash between the Auld Enemies.
The upcoming clash marks the first meeting between the two teams since a hard fought 0-0 draw in Euro 2020 and although the fixture is dubbed as a friendly, anyone of Three Lions or Tartan Army persuasion will tell you that such a word is not possible when England and Scotland share the field.
The match is a key test for Gareth Southgate’s side who are in pole position to qualify for next year’s tournament in Berlin, while Steve Clarke’s men will also enter the game high on confidence after a perfect run of five wins from five qualification games - the most notable of those being a standout 2-0 win over Spain.
The fixture has produced its fair share of memorable moments over the years including Paul Gascoigne’s stunner in Euro 96 and Don Hutching’s winning goal in 1999.
