I have to admit I am quite apathetic about this match. It’s unlikely I’ll go. Argentina are not the team the used to be, being ranked 7th in the world. This compares to their historical, almost guaranteed top 2 placing. So can we expect to see an outstanding match? With the South Americans heading south in the rankings I can only assume they are not the unstoppable machine they used to be.

Maybe I am being too negative. 7th in the World is not exactly poor. However I am also unsure how helpful it will be for Scotland to go up against a South American team. Our main concern has to be qualification for the World Cup. In recent years we are finding it difficult to qualify for that and Euro championships. With this in mind, perhaps Scotland need to face some East European teams as they seem to a significant barrier to qualification, e.g. if Scotland had won in Georgia like every other team in our Euro 2008 group, bar the Faroe Isles, we would have all been visiting Austria/Switzerland. Then, when we are good enough to ensure qualification, we can start thinking about facing non-European opposition.

I’ll definatley be watching. Whether its the Rob Roy or Famous 3 Kings we’ll be there watching for Miller, McFadden and co, hopefully showing the Argentines a goal or two.
