Scotland to face Denmark in an International Friendly


The SFA have confirmed that Scotland will face Denmark in a Vauxhall International Challenge Match at Hampden on Wednesday 10th August.

The game will be the final test for Craig Levein’s side before they face a Euro 2012 double-header against Czech Republic [3rd September] and Lithuania [6th September].

Manager Craig Levein said, “This game will be another tough challenge for us as we put the finishing touches to our preparations for the Euro 2012 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Lithuania. Denmark will be a completely different proposition from our last opponents, Brazil. But it’s exactly the type of game we need going into the qualifiers, and will allow us to build on the Carling Nations Cup matches against Wales and Republic of Ireland in May.

“We can’t wait to walk out at Hampden again, and I’m sure the Scotland supporters will be looking forward to watching the national team on home turf as we gear up for the last half of the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign.

It will be a day for the Scotland fans as Billy Stark’s Under 21 side face Norway in a friendly at St.Mirren Park at 4pm.

Levein added, “With the under-21s playing in Paisley earlier in the day, it promises to be a great day of Scotland action for the Tartan Army.”
