Holland beaten 3-1 by Russia in Euro 2008. Good result for Scotland?

Holland were looking unstoppable. Winning their way to the Euro 2008 quarter finals in ultimate style, it seemed they were the team most likely lift trophy on June 29. Russia, however, had other ideas. Winning 3-1 in extra time the Russians have ejected the Dutch and progressed to the semi-finals. Unfortunately for Holland, but possibly good for Scotland.

Could this upset give Scotland an edge in the World Cup 2010 qualifiers? Not to underestimate the Holland side, but going up against the Euro 2008 quarter finalists will be a lot less daunting than had the Dutch progressed further.
