Scotland's final push for glory

Scotland v Italy
Come the final whistle at 1900 GMT on Saturday, Scotland could be in what BBC Sport's Alan Hansen has called "total dreamland" - if they can beat Italy and qualify.

Italy go into the match amid a crisis in their domestic game after a fan was shot by a policeman, leading to violence between fans and the authorities across Italy.

Italian FA chief Giancarlo Abete says it will not affect the team. And Scottish FA chief executive Gordon Smith states he hopes it does not.

The question is: Can Scotland win? "Definitely," declares Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
