Scotland’s football team start their World Cup qualifying campaign this Sunday as they take on Malta.
Now they look to end years of hurt by qualifying for a major tournament for the first time since 1998 but our readers are not too hopeful.
William Thomson, from Wishaw, said: “I don’t think we’ve got much of a chance to be honest.
“I might be wrong but I think it’s got a lot harder to qualify in recent years and we’re not as good as we used to be.”
John Byrne thinks after the European Championships qualifying – which seen Scotland miss out by finishing fourth – the World Cup is a step too far.
He said: “I’d like to see us qualify but I don’t hold out much hope.
“Gordon Strachan has done a good job as manager but we’ve got a tough group so I can see us struggling.”
Wilson Good, pictured with daughters Eva and Orlaith, remains positive about the latest campaign which will see Scotland face Malta, England, Lithuania, Slovakia and Slovenia.
He added: “I really hope we can qualify this time because the squad we’ve got is a lot better and we’ve been improving.
“It’s a tough group but it’s not impossible to get through.”
Catherine Johnston, pictured with daughter Natalie, would like to see Scotland qualify.
She said: “It would be nice for Scotland to do it and hopefully they can do it.”
