Michael Owen states his prediction for England v Scotland

Michael Owen is expecting to see England beat Scotland at Wembley in their final World Cup qualifier of the year on Friday night.

The Three Lions are preparing to host their British rivals at Wembley as the look to take a step closer towards qualification for the 2018 tournament in Russia.

England currently sit top of Group F in the race for a spot in the tournament, two points ahead of second-placed Lithuania.

Scotland, meanwhile, are fourth after having taken four points from their opening three games under Gordon Strachan.

Gareth Southgate will once again be in charge of the England team for the game after his appointment as temporary manager following Sam Allardyce’s sacking.

And former England striker Owen is fully expecting to see the Three Lions claim the three points at Wembley on Friday night.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, former striker Owen said: “This will be the third time the nations have met in recent times, with England winning 3-2 in 2013 and 3-1 two years ago.

“I expect Southgate’s side to be too good for the Scots who may lack the quality needed to breech the England defence.”

England were knocked out of Euro 2016 by Iceland in the last-16 stage.
