Scotland made a historical return to the major international football scene earlier this summer as they qualified for the European Championships. 

It marked the team's first major tournament in 23-years, and now they are looking to replicate this success in the World Cup Qualifiers. 

Next year's world cup will take place in Qatar at the end of 2022, with Scotland among the teams vying for a spot to perform on the global stage

Fresh off the back of 1-0 win over Austria earlier this month, the team's next match is against Israel, who they have played six times in the last 3-years. 

Statistically speaking, it is slightly tipped in Israel's favour, with the team having won two of these matches over 90-minutes as opposed to Scotland's singular triumph. 

The good news for Scotland fans is that both team's wins have come in their home stadiums, with the next match due to take place at Hampden. 

It means that Scotland will have the home support to spur them on, and with only four matches left in qualifying, the team will be doing everything they can to secure their place in the play-offs.  

When is the Scotland v Israel World Cup Qualifier match?

Scotland v Israel will take place at Hampden stadium on Saturday October 9 at 5pm. 

Scotland are currently placed second in the Group F table, with the top 2 in each group guaranteed to qualify. 

However, it's very close between Scotland and Israel, who have 11 and 10 points respectively. 

Scotland manager Steve Clarke has called the match "another cup final", so fans are likely in for a good game.
