Scotland's Euro 2008 journey
Scotland are drawn in a tough qualification group for the Euro 2008 finals in Austria and Switzerland
It is Friday, 27 January 2006 and Scotland, having failed to qualify for the summer's World Cup finals, are desperate to prevent a decade passing since they last reached the finals of a major tournament.

But they look to be all out of luck when they are drawn in a Euro 2008 qualifying group that includes Italy, France and Ukraine.

Manager Walter Smith, who was appointed on 2 December 2004 after Berti Vogts' unsuccessful reign came to an end, attempts to put a brave face on things.

"It's very tough," he says. "But if we continue to improve our performances, we can qualify."
