Predicted XI for World Cup qualifier against Malta

Scott Brown

Charlie Mulgrew went off injured as Scotland kept their World Cup qualification hopes alive with a 2-0 victory over Malta.

"He did spit on me, he is a frightful bastard", Brown said.

"He is a awful b******". That's our fault. We didn't get the points that we would like to, but now we have a bit of momentum going and want to try to pick these points up again. "Getting the win was the main thing, it was about the team - not about one person or bookings or anything like that". The strength of the national teams are not equal, the Maltese have learned to defend well in recent years, but here in the attack to play until they do not really go. We played our game at our tempo.

'You can look back and say we could have done better there, there and there, but we've tried to make up for bad performances or low-key performances by doing the best we can'.

"It was a great result from England as well". We knew we had to win our game and then just hope they gave us a helping hand.

"We have to keep an eye on the players for the next four or five weeks, make sure they are all on top form".

"We've found new and exciting ways not to qualify", he said.

He said: "The Slovakia game will be massive now, hopefully the fans come out and support us".

Miami will be making its debut in the 2021 Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game and will be the ninth ACC team to make such an appearance. The Tide dominated the game defensively by holding the Seminoles to 40 yards rushing and forcing three turnovers.

As with Scotland's first goal against Lithuania, Griffiths' delivery from a corner was inch-perfect and Berra rose above Samuel Magri to power a header beyond visiting keeper Andrew Hogg from seven yards.

"It was a real sucker punch not getting the three points against England and if we had won that game we would be flying". So it's been a good eight days for the players.

"Slovakia will be hurting after Wembley and they know they are in for a right hard game here".

"We managed to step up and win it 3-0 and we need to push on from there". We've got Stuart Armstrong and James (McArthur) running in behind as well.

"We could have scored more goals tonight but we were a wee bit exhausted after Friday".

Former Scotland hero and ex-Celtic boss Strachan roared "bring it on" after watching Scotland win two games on the bounce. Seriously I didn't even think about it.

But we are here, and Scotland now have a chance.
