Helguson is in the Iceland Team to Play Scotland!


Scotland are 4/7 to win tonight's match with Sky Bet, Iceland are 9/2 and you can back the draw at 13/5.

Here is some more detailed information about tonight's game: Barry Ferguson and Allan McGregor are both named on the bench for Scotland's World Cup qualifier against Iceland at Hampden tonight. The Rangers duo are dropped from the team after taking part in a lengthy drinking session at their Loch Lomond base at the weekend. Manager George Burley hands Ferguson's captain's armband to Stephen McManus - who missed Saturday's 3-0 defeat in Holland through injury - and Craig Gordon is recalled in goal. James Morrison, Alan Hutton and Steven Fletcher are also given starting roles in what is a must-win game for the Scots if they are to have any hope of clinching second place in Group Nine.

The teams in full are: Scotland: Gordon, Hutton, McManus, Caldwell, Naysmith, Morrison, D, Fletcher, Brown, McCormack, Miller, S, Fletcher Subs: McGregor, Teale, Berra, Ferguson, Rae, Clarkson, Whittaker

Iceland: Gunnleifsson, Danielsson, K, Sigurdsson, I, Sigurdsson, Eiriksson, Steinsson, A, Gunnarsson, Helguson, Palmason, Gudjohnsen, Smarason Subs: Arason, Gudmundsson, R, Sigurdsson, E, Jonsson, Gunnarson, Bjarnason, Bjornsson Referee: Thomas Einwaller (Austria)
