Brown: The pressure is all on England

Scotland captain Scott Brown claims England are the team under the most pressure going into tonight's friendly at Wembley.

I think there is a lot more pressure on them to beat us. We are the underdogs.

But we have got great players and match-winners as well so we are all looking forward to it.

It is going to be a great occasion taking the lads out at Wembley. It is going to be huge, it is definitely right up there, even bigger than taking Celtic out for the last 16 of the Champions League.

It is going to be hard, high-tempo and a great occasion for the fans as well and I'm sure the Tartan Army will be there in their thousands.

England Under-21s gave themselves a timely morale-boost by hitting Scotland for six in this evening's friendly clash at Bramall Lane.

Roy Hodgson was in charge of the side, who won thanks to goals from Nathan Redmond, Raheem Sterling, Connor Wickham (2), Ross Barkley and Tom Carroll.

The only real negative point for the Young Lions came shortly before the interval when midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah sustained an injury from a Tony Watt tackle and had to depart the field on a stretcher.
