"We've both got a lifeline and it's up to us to take the chance" - England and Aston Villa defender Gareth Southgate.
"We won't beat England with bagpipes and claymores. If we beat England we'll do it by cool concentration" - Scotland manager Craig Brown.
"The disadvantage is that we know a lot about each other. Our dirty laundry is out there for everyone to see" - England manager Kevin Keegan.
"In a situation like this where England have stumbled over the last three or four games, Scotland have a chance. A big chance" - Celtic coach and former England winger John Barnes.
"If you look at the names in both squads then you would have to make England favourites. But favourites can be beaten" - Former Scotland striker Kenny Dalglish.

"The English stole our land. The English robbed us of our oil. The English perpetrated the Highland clearances. And now the English have even pinched Billy Connolly" - Former Scotland captain Gordon Strachan puts the match in perspective.
"It is a fixture which should never have died regardless of what people think. It is a tradition that should never have died" - Football pundit and former Scotland international Andy Gray.
