Scotland's Charlie Mulgrew: Beating England would mean everything to me


We definitely know how much it means to everyone and it means a lot to us as well. We don't know the nature of their joint performance. "I still feel it's very important to us all".

However, with England now four points clear at the top of the group - six ahead of the Scots - going into the game and having lost only one of the last 10 meetings between the Auld Enemies, Mulgrew admits it will be a tall order to secure the three points.

It is 18 years since the Scots last overcame the auld enemy, Don Hutchison's goal securing a 1-0 win at Wembley, and Charlie Mulgrew is desperate to bring that wait to an end.

"It would mean everything to me", the 31-year-old said.

"It is something I have grown up thinking about, playing in these type of games".

"I remember Don Hutchison scored at Wembley".

"There are still some very good players in the team, but unfortunately now Scotland just don't have the numbers to be a really top side, although I hope they can come back (to qualify)". Every one of their players are world class and it is going to be hard for us, but we are up for it and we will be ready for it when the game comes.

Gordon Strachan's men are now fourth in Group F, but only two points behind second-placed Slovakia.
