  • Scotland vs Slovakia World Cup Qualifying UEFA

IRELAND's hopes of qualifying for the World Cup received a massive boost tonight as Scotland managed a dramatic win over Slovakia at Hampden Park. No matter what players play, we've got a good squad.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men in the 22nd minute when Mak got a second yellow for diving inside the box as Craig Gordon came out to challenge. "We had all these great performances and the footballing gods have made a decision to give us a victory", Strachan added. "The manager said earlier in the week that it might not be the first minute or the 45th but maybe the last minute that we need to get a goal so he's proven right and the fitness level of the lads was different class".

"A great performance", said Fletcher. I signalled to my kids in the stand at the end making sure they knew I was OK.

In the first half his save from Christophe Berra drew gasps from the Scotland support, while his acrobatic stop to deny James Morrison's goal bound effort seconds after Leigh Griffiths' cracked the bar with a free-kick left many questioning whether it was just not going to be our night.

Irish fans were watching intently, knowing that a Scotland win was exactly what we needed, as should they fail to win in their final game against Slovenia, Ireland can secure a playoff place with two wins agains Moldova and Wales. It was obvious, a lot of people were getting anxious and that is what you pay your ticket for, that is part of the emotions that you get when you watch a match. Slovenia for their part definitely need a win, and then to hope that something odd happens in Trnava.

"But it means just as much to the rest of the boys as it does to me and it means just as much to the whole country".

Martin Skrtel's late own-goal caused euphoric scenes around Hampden that continued long after the final whistle.

"You don't want to concede goals, you've got to stay in the game".

"When you see guys are ready to go on and play, and don't let the disappointment take over, it is easy for you". Referees are capable of anything so we keep calm heads and keep doing what we've been doing.

Who would you have in your Scotland starting XI for the game against Slovenia?
