Tip: England & under 2.5 goals @ 2/1 with Bet365

One of the oldest rivalries in football – and in general – resumes this Friday when England take on the Auld Enemy, Scotland, at Wembley. It’s always a ferocious occasion when these two meet and the fact that this is their first competitive clash of the century is sure to add a little extra spice to proceedings. It’s going to be spicier than a mouth full of ghost peppers.

It’s a pivotal moment in the career of Gareth Southgate. If he wins, as expected, then he’ll be crowned the new England manager afterwards. He’s overseen the national team in the wake of the Big Sam scandal and the FA are allegedly so impressed with how things have gone with him in the hotseat that they want to glue him to the hotseat. It’s not as hot as a mouth full of ghost peppers. No, in fact, there’s very little expectation on the England manager now.

As long as he qualifies for a major tournament and doesn’t talk to fake sheikhs, he’s doing a fine job. Southgate’s two games in charge were against Malta and Slovenia, wielding two comically underwhelming results: a 2-0 win and a 0-0 draw respectively. What really impressed the FA was when the ex-Middlesbrough man showed his ghoulies by dropping Wayne Rooney.

“What a maverick. We must have that man,” they might have said.

Scott Brown is back for Scotland but it might only be for this match at Wembley. He’ll see how the mood takes him. Understandably, this flippant selection process isn’t to the liking of everybody. Charlie Adam has hit out at being omitted from the squad by Gordon Strachan, saying that his face doesn’t fit in Strachan’s vision. No joke to be made there.

England predicted XI: Hart, Walker, Cahill, Stones, Rose, Henderson, Dier, Lallana, Rooney, Sterling, Kane

Scotland XI: Marshall, Paterson, Hanley, Martin, Berra, Brown, Fletcher, Bannan, Snodgrass, Fletcher, Anya
