Scotland boost hopes of World Cup qualification with late victory over Slovakia

Charlie Nicholas predicts Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths to score for Scotland Slovakia prepares for a crucial match against Scotland

Not much of a goal to celebrate, but that would not have mattered one bit as Scotland's World Cup dream was dead and buried at this stage previous year, but now they are one win away from the playoffs.

"Scotland should never have worn pink against England, but it was apparently because we had white sleeves on our blue shirts".

A tense affair saw Martin, Ikechi Anya and James McArthur introduced in the second half with Slovakia continuing to thwart the hosts, and Strachan was delighted to see the fitness of all 14 players pay off with a late victor handed to them by the "footballing gods".

Robert Mak's first-half red card for two bookable offences put Scotland in the box seat but they struggled to break the visitors down before a combination of Chris Martin and Skrtel bundled the ball home to spark jubilant scenes in Glasgow.

"I genuinely thought we were going to score a goal", Strachan told Sky Sports.

"We got a bit more time on the ball, they can keep the ball when they get it back, but there's no doubt about the man of the match, for them - the goalkeeper".

"We try and start at the same level where we are all looking forward to joining up with each other".

Now the focus turns to Sunday's match against Slovenia - safe in the knowledge that victory in that final encounter will guarantee them a place in the draw for the play-offs next month. Everyone was up for it after a good week's training and walking about with smiles on their faces and "and something you're proud to be involved with", he said. Strachan commented last week that Griffiths looked a different person to the player he handed his competitive global debut - but Berra feels his former Wolves team-mate just gets on with scoring goals.

'I'm so happy for everyone but we still have a job to do in Slovenia. We got all these great performances and the footballing Gods have chose to give us a victory'.

"I'm just going to enjoy this for about an hour-and-a-half and then I'll really think about tomorrow morning".
