Bryan Robson relishing the return of Scotland to Wembley after 14 years
Bryan Robson says that he expects England to overcome Scotland on Wednesday, but has warned it will not be easy.
Speaking ahead of the Tartan Army’s first visit to England in 14 years, the former England captain said: "The Scottish fans are always up for it, it’s just that passion and the way they come across in those games.
"You’ve always got to look at a competitive game like the England v Scotland game, all the players are going to be right up for that match; you want to win in that game and you don’t want to get beat."
Following the recent visit of the Republic of Ireland, Robson, who won 90 caps for England during an 11-year international career, welcomed the fact that the Three Lions are taking on the Home Nations as part of The FA’s 150th anniversary celebrations.
He said: "I used to just love it, the Home Championships, and especially playing against Scotland. At Manchester United and at West Brom we used to have a lot of Scottish players within the squad, so there was always a lot of banter going on.
"The atmosphere was just fantastic. You'd go to Hampden as well and it was always fantastic."
Scotland travel to Wembley on the back of an impressive recent victory in Croatia, and Robson said that he has every confidence his former Manchester United team-mate Gordon Strachan is the best man to continue taking the team forward.
"I think he will give lots of passion to the job. He’s enthusiastic and he’ll give that enthusiasm to the players, he’ll get them organised and I think going forward he’ll get the best out of them and that’s all you can do as a manager."
