Scotland, England meet at Celtic Park

England coach Roy Hodgson discusses the team's performance against Costa Rica and is overwhelmed with the support of fans throughout the World Cup tournament.

Scotland and England will meet in a November friendly at Celtic Park, the two football associations have announced.

Gordon Strachan and Roy Hodgson pit their sides against each other on Nov. 18, with the game a sequel to a thrilling Wembley meeting last August, won 3-2 by England.

The match, England's final senior fixture of the calendar year, comes three days after they travel to Slovenia for a Euro 2016 qualifier.

It will be the sides' first meeting in Scotland for almost 15 years, since two Paul Scholes goals won the first leg of a Euro 200 playoff.

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan told the Scottish FA's official website: "We have enjoyed an encouraging buildup to our UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying campaign, and I am sure the players, the coaching staff and the fans will love the chance to go head-to-head with our oldest rivals again.

"Like our supporters, I was really heartened by the performance against England at Wembley and believe we had a great opportunity to record a win we could all have talked about for years.

"Now we have that chance again, and I am sure the players and the fans will be even more determined to take it.

"The atmosphere at Wembley was incredible and I am sure, with Celtic Park filled with Scotland supporters, it is a game the whole country will look forward to."
