James Morrison: Says Croatia's complacency will drive Scotland on in their W

Ahead of the clash in Zagreb, Croatia striker Ivica Olic spoke of how he anticipated winning the game by 'at least two or three goals', and coach Igor Stimac said he was expecting to come up against an 'inexperienced defence'.

The two sides have had differing fortunes during qualification with the Scots still chasing their first win, but Morrison says the comments coming from the Croatia camp will give them an added incentive.

"We're going to use that as motivation. Nobody likes to be disrespectful," he told The Daily Record.

"We know they are a good team but they don't need to go about it the way they're doing it.

"They say in football don't talk, just play."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
