Blues legend highlights where the clash between England and Scotland could be won and lost

Terry Butcher admits he’s surprised Town defender, Christophe Berra isn’t more of a regular fixture in Scotland’s starting line-up.

The former Hearts and Wolves defender has made over 30 appearances for his country but has often been an unused substitute in recent years.

Speaking ahead of the World Cup Qualifier between the Scots and England at Wembley on Friday, Blues legend Butcher believes the defence will be the area Gareth Southgate’s side should be looking to exploit.

“I’m surprised Christophe isn’t playing more, and I’m surprised at the centre-halves that Scotland are putting out,” he told Ipswich Player HD.

“They have done a reasonable job for them, but the back four is definitely the weakest part of the Scotland team, especially with the two left-backs that are injured now [Andy Robertson and Kieran Tierney].

“I think if England have a go at Scotland they have a really good chance of getting the lead and getting the three points.

“If Scotland take the lead it will make it much more difficult, and the last time they were at Wembley they led twice but England managed to win 3-2, so that will do me!”
