• ‘Maybe it’s a good fixture – there’s no expectation,’ says Clarke
• Roberto Martínez says Romelu Lukaku is ‘happy and refreshed’
An encounter with the top-ranked team in the world would not be everyone’s idea of salvation, just days after a harrowing home defeat. Steve Clarke, though, insists Belgium’s visit to Glasgow might be the ideal follow-up to Scotland’s Friday night loss to Russia.
Clarke did nothing to mask the mood in the Scottish camp in the aftermath of a 2-1 defeat that probably should have been by a greater margin. “It was flat,” admitted Scotland’s manager. He bridled, however, at the suggestion that Belgium, who have beaten Scotland 7-0 on aggregate in their last two meetings, were the last side he wanted to come up against on Monday night.
