Scotland welcome Denmark to Hampden Park tonight as Steve Clarke’s side aim to end their World Cup qualifying campaign on a happy note after securing a play-off spot ahead of the next winter tournament in Qatar.
Scotland’s 2-0 win over Moldova on Friday saw Clarke’s team finish second in Group F. The Danes have won all nine qualifiers after beating Scotland 2-0 in Copenhagen in September – although the result against the Scots could have been much more one-sided. Still, this is not a deadlock for Scotland, who are now aiming to finish as one of the top six runner-up teams, which would give them a spot in next March’s play-offs. A result here could significantly increase Scotland’s hopes of a home semi-final draw in these play-offs, so Clarke and his players will be eager for a strong performance in front of the Hampden Park believers tonight.
Scotland’s participation in Euro 2020 this summer was its first appearance at a major tournament since the 1998 World Cup, so qualifying for Qatar would be the first time in 24 years to qualify for a World Cup in 2022.
