SPORT World Cup

The argument that the national game is suffering due to Scottish game’s influx of foreign stars can now be put to the test as the World Cup campaign rolls back into action. As Belgium and San Marino prepare to drop into Glasgow, this is the chance for young talents such as Gary Naysmith, John O’Neil and Gary Holt to impress both national coach Craig Brown and the often fickle Tartan Army.

So what are the chances of Scotland making it to the 2002 World Cup Finals? With three away games played, the Scots lie in a comfortable position, sharing top spot with the Belgians, both having won two and drawn one. It takes little brainpower to see that the clash at Hampden between the leaders is, as they say, a real six-pointer.

However, one glance at the goals for and against column show the difference between the sides. Both have conceded just one goal so far, but Belgium have cracked in fourteen to the Scots’ four. Kevin Gallacher, Matt Elliott, Don Hutchinson and Neil McCann have found the net for Scotland in relatively uninspiring victories against Latvia (1-0) and San Marino (2-0) and one fine against group favourites Croatia (1-1).

So, who is going to find the net for Scotland as they attempt to leapfrog the Belgians in this double-header completed with a must-win match against the hapless San Marino, rooted in bottom spot? With Billy Dodds and Kenny Miller struggling with their form for Rangers, Mark Burchill being shunned by Celtic to play a bit part for Ipswich and Neil McCann out for the rest of the season, goals may again need to come from midfield.

Paul Lambert, Craig Burley, Barry Ferguson and Colin Cameron (pictured) all have the ability to surge through and score while Matt Elliott may again be asked to take his unnatural position upfront. Which begs the question on the lips of every fan: why wasn’t Henrik Larsson born in Scotland?
