I'm mildly confident about Scotland's chances of a second place finish.

Russia are certainly beatable and if Scotland are set up to actually play attacking football we stand a chance as long as we get points vs the lower ranked teams which has been Scotland's Achilles heel for a long time.

Robertson has a dental appointment and Tierney has a sore hip so both have pulled out of Scotlands opening match.

Two players wont be risked due to the artificial pitch and this is on top of 3 other players who dropped out earlier.

That achilles heel problem is damned persistent.

I would imagine that in Sundays' game against the whipping boys of the group San Marino will quite fancy their chances!

The Scottish national football team is now the underdog against a range of made-up countries.

Following a 3-0 defeat to Kazakhstan, Scotland fans are now dreading matches against places that exist only in literature or fantasy role playing games.

Bill McKay, from Edinburgh, said: “Ruritania, Lilliput and the druids from beyond the Ultra-Forest of Kwang must be relishing the prospect.

“At this point we need a fictional manager. I’d like us to show a bit of ambition and approach Eleven from Stranger Things.”

Current Scotland manager Alex McLeish said: “There are no minnows in world football anymore, even if their most popular sport is horseback sword-fighting.”

He added: “We did force the keeper to make an above average save.”

We finished 4th at the World Cup last summer and are through to the final 4 of the European Nations League this summer so I'd say it's a pretty accurate reflection of where we are right now.

I think international rankings are pretty pointless tbh.
