England take on Scotland in a competitive international for the first time in 17 years at Wembley on Friday night. Gareth Southgate's side go into this World Cup qualifier on top of Group F with seven points from three games, while Gordon Strachan's men sit 4th on four points. The two teams use the occasion to mark Armistice Day by wearing poppies on black armbands, in defiance of Fifa rules which prohibit political, religious or personal statements.
