All this time I was deceiving myself, Scotland are going to Brazil after all.
Tonight’s historic 1-0 win against Estonia signifies a seismic change in our fortunes.
To be fair we had a couple of quality performances from Charlie Mulgrew, Chris Burke and Robert Snodgrass especially.
There were many changes in the second half and while no-one set the heather alight it was a solid performance.
Unfortunately every single one of our Group A opponents won as well. Some emphatically.
Croatia 4 – 0 South Korea
Cyprus 1 – 3 Serbia
Macedonia 3 – 0 Denmark
Belgium 2 – 1 Slovakia
Wales 2 – 1 Austria
But a win is a win. Everything movies to the home game against Wales. Lets see what happens.
