The three Celtic stars who can secure a Scotland victory over England
Scotland face England this Saturday in one of the most iconic football fixtures in world football. With half the games in Group F of World Cup Qualifying complete, Gordon Strachan’s side sit perilously in fourth position, two points behind the play-off positions.
