Gordon: I have history with Defoe, he broke my arm

Gareth Southgate

With regular captain Wayne Rooney having been left out of the squad Kane will wear the armband at Hampden Park, the first time he has led out an England team. But Rodgers had shaped his Celtic side around a spine of Scots, and several of those players were in the form of their lives.

One quirk of previous encounters may be on Strachan's side: the presence of his opposite number, Gareth Southgate, in the England team for the visit of Scotland in 1999 was sufficient for Don Hutchison to be belatedly drafted into the visiting lineup at Wembley.

He said: "We don't score a lot of goals, Scotland, and I know we lost at Wembley against England, but we have to take the positives from that and say that we did create chances against a really good team".

"I felt it was important to give people the opportunity to lead in different ways".

"I am 23 and hopefully have quite a few years ahead of me to learn and get better".

The Tottenham striker has yet to play a part for his country under new boss Gareth Southgate, with a succession of injuries ruling him out of the Three Lions' last four World Cup qualifiers and the friendly against Germany.

The twice Premier League top goalscorer has scored five goals in 17 internationals and Southgate has been impressed by his desire to improve.

"It will need a huge performance from everyone but Scotland can get a win against England". "Harry has definite leadership qualities", said Southgate in March of this year. I feel like I'm a leader.

"I didn't learn much about myself because I knew how I would react to certain situations", said Rashford, who hopes to start in the qualifier against Scotland. 'I really do. I'd be really disappointed if we didn't get anything from it'.

"Even as a captain at times you want someone else to pass the baton on to. He is an enforcer but also a passer of the ball and if he is given a specific role he has the ability, physically and mentally to cope with that and I think he could still do it now", he told the Daily Record. "I wish we could use the "get into 'em theory" but you cannot use it anymore", he said.

"That shows in training, the standard is very high and the tempo is high, and everyone is buzzing for the game".

Despite going off injured in the final of the European Championships last summer, Ronaldo scored three goals and assisted two en route, but it was the way he conducted himself on the sidelines that stood out the most.

"The biggest thing was coming together as one team".

"It is the same for Scotland and England - in that 90 minutes, they are the enemy, but after the game, no matter who has won, you go and shake hands".

With Vardy out, Harry Kane, Jermain Defoe and Marcus Rashford will compete for a starting berth.

"It's going to be a hard game but it's one we look forward to and one as a player you want to be involved in".
