Jermain Defoe has his sights set on a landmark goal on Wednesday night as England welcome their oldest rivals to Wembley.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker has netted 19 goals in 54 games for the Three Lions and is now looking for another one against Scotland.
And Defoe says that scoring his 20th international goal in such an important and historic fixture would be "amazing".
"It's not really a friendly, we'll approach it like a qualifier," Defoe told TheFA.com. "It will be like a Premier League game, and will be different to a normal international match I think.
"It will be a high-tempo from the start, with or without the ball, and hopefully we can get the win.
"To play and score in a game like this would be amazing. People will be watching it for years and years to come.
"I remember the goal that Gazza scored at Euro '96, an unbelievable goal, and people still talk about that now. If one of us can do that against them this time, people will talk about it for a long time."
England have not faced Scotland since 1999 adding even more spice to this 'derby' fixture organised as part of The FA's 150th anniversary celebrations.
A large crowd is expected, including over 20,000 visiting fans, and Defoe says England must make the most of home advantage.
"To see an England v Scotland game you have to go on ESPN Classics, and even then it's rare, so it's a special game," said the 30-year-old.
"The Ireland game was a good one too, but England v Scotland is very special and I'm sure the fans will be looking forward to it. As a player these are the games you want to play in.
"With it being at home it's important to show teams who come to Wembley that this is our patch and we're going to make it difficult."
He added: "It's a massive game, an important game, they'll be bringing a lot of fans and I'm sure they won't approach it as a friendly.
"It's a good game to get us going, hopefully and a win to build confidence before we go into those important qualifiers next month.
"England v Scotland, you don't get much better than that."
