International Football

This Friday sees all five home nations in international football action, with a cracker at Hampden Park between Scotland and Wales.

The Welsh And Scots sit fifth and sixth respectively in Group A,  with the loser effectively out of the running for qualification.

Wales won their last international friendly against Austria 2-1 and Scotland under new manager Gordon Strachan narrowly overcame Estonia 1-0.

With both teams struggling for goals this year, it could well be a cagey encounter in some freezing conditions.

Elsewhere, England head to the lowest ranked FIFA international team San Marino, looking for another win in their quest to qualify for Rio 2014.

Steven Gerrard could go level on goals (20) with World Cup winner Martin Peters if he nets in Serravalle Stadium.

England won 5-0 in October and the minnows of world football have never won a competitive international match.

Republic of Ireland head to Sweden looking to go above their rivals and into second in their group. Both sides have won two and drew one in their opening three games.

Northern Ireland welcome Russia as they look to get their qualification rolling again in a tricky group.

Full Results will be found on the site next week
