England are strong favourites to win their second match of the 2012 qualifiers, however this is probably a trickier tie than the odds makers would have you believe. Switzerland are a solid team and with the cloud hanging over Wayne Rooney due to his personal life a win could be just beyond England tonight. Overall a draw would be a good result for both sides and this looks the unlikely result.
Scotland have a should win game at home to Liechtenstein and they will be looking to score a few goals to boost their confidence for the tougher tasks ahead. Expect Liechtenstein to put 11 men behind the ball and although a Scotland win looks assured it might only be 2-0. Darren Fletcher should win his 50th cap in the match a great achievement for a player who is only 26.
The other British team involved is The Republic of Ireland and they should be far too strong for Andorra and a 4-5 goal win is not out of the question.
