The Scots first welcomed the 'Auld Enemy' to the West of Scotland Cricket Club in 1872, with 4,000 fans watching as international football was born with a 0-0 draw.
Tonight’s contest is the first friendly between the two rivals in almost nine years, which England won at Celtic Park, but there have been three competitive meetings between them since - the last two of which have been draws.
The last match was a tepid stalemate at Wembley during the group stage of Euro 2020, while the previous clash in Glasgow in 2017 saw Harry Kane net a last-gasp equaliser to save England’s blushes following a Leigh Griffiths late show in a dramatic World Cup qualifier.
Both sides are on the brink of reaching Euro 2024 and will put their respective successful qualifying campaigns to one side in a high-profile showdown that will be a friendly in name only.

Scotland vs England prediction
Scotland have more than enough about them to claim a win in front of their home fans, especially considering how half-baked England looked at the weekend.
England had to rely on some inspiration from Kane to claim a point against Ukraine, so Southgate could do with more spark in midfield to make a real game of it.
Scotland 2-2 England.
