Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Scotland will be aiming to extend their winning run in Group F to four games when they take on Faroe Islands in Torshavn on Tuesday evening. The Scotts recorded a very important 3-2 win over Israel in their last group game, with the team moving one step closer to securing a top-two finish. Man Utd midfielder Scott McTominay, who scored a late winner against Israel, will be the man to watch in the away team.
Nathan Patterson should keep his place in the starting line-up. Faroe Islands, on the other hand, are not enjoying a successful qualifying campaign, with the team collecting only four points in total in Group F. Since both Israel and Austria are breathing down Scotland’s neck, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on Steve Clarke’s troops.
Highlighted Player (Liam Cooper):
Liam Cooper is a Scotland international, who was born in Kingston Upon Hull, England. Cooper was eligible to play for both England and Scotland, but he decided to represent the Scotts on the international stage.
The Leeds United defender, who is capable of playing at left and centre back, received his first ever call-up for Scotland on 10 March 2016 for a friendly match against Denmark, but he did not make his debut for the senior team back then. Liam Cooper began his career at Hull City and, after spending several seasons on loan at Carlisle United and Huddersfield Town he joined Chesterfield in 2013.
On 13 August, 2014, he signed a three-year deal with Leeds United for an undisclosed fee. Speaking of individual honours, Liam Cooper was named Young Player of the Year for the 2007/2008 season (Hull City). It has to be noted that he won Football League Two with Chesterfield in the 2013/2014 season.
Highlighted Team (Scotland):
Despite being part of United Kingdom Scotland participate in football competitions as an independent country. The Scots qualified for the 1950 FIFA World Cup finals, but the SFA eventually withdrew their entry as they were not British champions. Four years later Scotland national football team participated at the showpiece tournament in Switzerland, but they were eliminated in the group stages.
Scotland booked their place at the FIFA World Cup on eight occasions, but they have not played a match at the finals of the major tournament since 1998. On the other hand, the Scotts participated at both Euro 1992 and Euro 1996, but they failed to qualify for the knockout stages at the tournaments in Sweden and England respectively. A number of Premier League stars played for the Scotland national football team in the past and Jim Baxter, Hughie Gallacher, John Greig, Jimmy Johnstone, Billy McNeill, Bobby Murdoch, Archie Gemmill and Lawrie Reilly are the footballers who made more than 50 appearances for Scotland, with Alan Hutton and Scott Brown joining the list recently.
The Scotts recorded their biggest win back in February 23, 1901, with the team rolling over Ireland 11-0. The team suffered their biggest defeat against Uruguay (0-7) in June, 1954. Gordon Strachan’s team welcome their opponents at Hampden Park.
