IT'S been a pretty dramatic build-up to the internationals with first Scotland then England seeing players forced to withdraw.
Scotland will be without Stuart Armstrong, Kieran Tierney and Ryan Christie who are now self-isolating as well as injured quartet James Forrest, Oli Burke, Liam Palmer and Scott McKenna.
To be fair only Christie – Tierney's absence simplifies the Andy Robertson/Tierney conundrum – is a major loss so Steve Clarke's men should still be strong enough to get the job done and book a Euro 2020 play-off final with Norway or Serbia.
There are eight one-legged play-offs in all including Slovakia vs Ireland, Bosnia-Herzegovina vs Northern Ireland and of course Norway vs Serbia where I'm backing prolific Borussia Dortmund hitman Erling Haaland to score.
And there are a handful of friendlies including England vs Wales and Russia vs Sweden. Tammy Abraham, Ben Chilwell and Jadon Sancho are out the England game after attending a surprise birthday party for the Chelsea striker.
England should still have enough to win the friendly at Wembley but as most people know I hate betting on friendlies and both to score is possibly the call here.
On Wednesday though there was plenty of action unless you were looking at expected goals between Portugal and Spain.
That finished 0-0 while we had other scorelines such as France 7, Ukraine 1; Italy 6, Moldova 0; Germany 3, Turkey 3 and Poland 5, Finland 1. It was just like another weekend in the Premier League.
And one of the strangest results of the night was Andorra U-21s 3, England U-21s 3 as the visitors dropped their first point in seven group games as the minnows netted an injury-time equaliser.
I got the goals I needed too in the Betfred Cup to make it three winners in two days in Scotland. I did a bit of a both to score long shot but non-league sides Kelty Hearts and Brora Rangers did themselves proud by netting in narrow defeats to Premiership St Johnstone and Hibs respectively to land a 27-10 winner.
My Super Single is Haaland to score and while there's not much else I fancy I'm going with a Norway vs Serbia shootout producing goals and Bosnia, with their little bit of extra quality, to edge out the Irish.
