Beware the Faroe Isles

In all the excitement of the start of college football, I hadn’t noticed that Scotland starts Euro 2008 qualification play tomorrow against the Faroe Islands. Now you might think that playing a country with a population measured in the tens of thousands, where dynamite is required for a flat pitch, might be no problem, but Scotland managed to get 2 – 0 down in Toftir during non-qualification for Euro 2004, before managing a draw.

The British papers may claim that Scotland is somewhat resurgent, but let’s see what happens at Celtic Park tomorrow before we get carried away, eh?
