FT: Wales 2 Scotland 1

FINAL WORD - Neil Hepburn says: "Swansea Jones comments about 2 tiers in world cup football are completely biased and nonsense. Big tournaments can be won by outsiders ie. Denmark won the euro's when they never even qualified, only getting in due to war in the former Yugoslavia and Greece big outsiders won.To call this football an irrelevance is arrogant in the extreme. Millions of Welsh and Scots don't find it an irrelevance." Hear, hear Neil - the game tonight was by no means an irrelevance, it was two sides committed to win.

FULL TIME. Wales comeback to post their first win under Chris Coleman. Great end to the game. Cheers for your views tonight, stay with us for reaction.

Swansea Jones says: "I'm afraid we can all see that this type of football is now an irrelevance; both nations are so far down the pecking order that there should be 2 tiers in the world cup. A tournament for the small nations and perhaps 2 then qualify for the big one. I have spent nearly 50 years watching Wales trying to enter a seeded closed shop; pointless. The players now know this, hence the fact they are not really bothered! And neither are we. The scots fans haven't quite woken up to this yet. They will." That's a bit cynical mate, you never know, although as an England fan I'm starting to think we'll never win the World Cup in my lifetime!

The players are out on the pitch, not long to go now!

FIRST VIEW - Gabriel says: "Both teams need a win to cling onto a hope of going to Brazil in 2014 but, to be frank, I can't see that happening anyway. Belgium, Croatia and Serbia are all nations growing rapidly within football and I would fully expect two of those teams to qualify. Having said that, it's not like either side has anything to lose in this match so I'm predicting goals, 2-2." Cheers Gabriel, enjoy the game!

MY PREDICTION - I think Scotland will prove too strong here and win 2-0 which pays a handsome 9/1 with Sky Bet! What are your views / predictions for tonight's game? Send them to steve.pass2@bskyb.com
