‘WRITTEN-OFF SCOTS CAN BE WEMBLEY WONDERS,’ KENNY MILLER

VETERAN striker Kenny Miller reckons Scotland’s “underdogs” can shock England in Friday’s World Cup qualifier at Wembley.
Gordon Strachan’s side have only four points on the board in Group F after beatung Malta, drawing Lithuania and losing to Slovakia.
But the Rangers frontman, who retired from international duty after winning 69 caps and scoring 18 goals, insists Scotland always turn up for the big occasion.

He said: “I think we’ve got as good a chance as we have in any game. We’ve not started great within the group, we could have had a couple of better results and performances, probably.

“In a game like this, you are definitely going in as underdogs.kenny-miller-off-the-bench

“One, you’re away from home and two, you’re playing against a team that has got a level of player that is superior to you.

“But that’s never been an issue for us. Any time we have come up against the bigger nations we normally rise to the occasion.”

Miller was the last player to score for the Scots against the English at their national stadium in a 3-2 friendly defeat in August 2013.

The 36-year-old attacker said: “I felt in the last game, we were not really given much chance with the level of player you are coming up against and the fact it was at Wembley.

“I thought we should have got something from that game.
“I know there were no points up for grabs, it was a friendly, but I think we should have at least come away with a draw.
“Our performance on the night was very, very good. The lad can go and do that again and I’m sure Gordon will have them prepared for the test at hand.

“Let’s be honest, England are not in a great shape at the moment, so there’s no reason why we can’t achieve a positive result.”
