UEFA Euro 2012 Qualifiers Dates Agreed

Friday, 19 February 2010

NATIONAL coach Craig Levein has emerged from the UEFA Euro 2012 Group I dates meeting happy with his qualification schedule.


"I am relatively pleased with the outcome," he said. "We went in with certain objectives that we wanted to achieve and with the exception of one compromise, I consider it a good result.

"We were adamant that we did not want a game in June and wanted a week´s preparation for the four games against the Czechs and Lithuania. We also wanted Spain in October, which we got.

"I want to give a lot of credit to George Peat and Gordon Smith for the groundwork in the build-up between the draw and today. The outcome shows that the behind-the-scenes work this morning and the preparatory work done when we arrived on Thursday was important in trying to cement a fixture schedule that suited us. It was a lot more productive than turning up and starting from scratch.

"The draw itself is only positive if we manage to turn what we think is a promising fixture schedule into points."

Friday 3rd September         Lithuania v Scotland

Please note due to new UEFA regulation all international midweek games are now to be played on Tuesdays to allow players more recovery time when returning to their clubs. To allow sufficient rest time during double headers, the home associations in the first game are allowed to schedule for a Friday evening. The police in Scotland have prohibited Friday night games therefore should the first game of a double header be our home tie, then it will be played on a Saturday afternoon.
