Pre-match Thoughts

Charlie Mulgrew

"I think everyone in the squad has confidence in their ability and that shows out there in training.

"The standard is very high, the tempo is very high. Everyone is buzzing. It is going to be a very difficult game, but it is one as a player you want to be involved in."

Mark McGhee

"If you look at the group and look at the table, if we beat England, we're four points behind them. 

"I think there is a very positive feeling since the Slovenia game.

"We get it from the fans - I meet fans all the time and there has been a lift since then and I think the players have had a lift from the result and also the reaction of the supporters."

Security Measures

We have been in constant dialogue with Police Scotland, The FA and other key partners in order to ensure appropriate safety and security measures on matchday.

Increased security measures will be in operation in and around Hampden Park, including bag and people searches. As a result there may be delays entering the stadium, so we encourage all fans to arrive in plenty of time.

Gates will open at 3pm in order to accommodate searches at the outer cordons of the stadium located at Aikenhead Road, Prospecthill Road, Mount Annan Drive, Somerville Drive and Letherby Drive, with additional bag searches at the turnstiles.
