Scotland are languishing at the bottom of World Cup qualifying Group A with just two points from six games and have no chance of making it through to next summer's tournament in Brazil.

However, Snodgrass thinks Scotland have deserved more from some of the games, particularly the two fixtures against Wales which ended in 2-1 defeats.

The Norwich City midfielder insists there is enough quality at Gordon Strachan's disposal to have high hopes for the future, and he is looking for a good performance in Zagreb.

"Seeing what the boys do at Premier League and SPL level, I think it is just a matter of time before all that comes together and you see things going our way," Snodgrass said.

"We've been very unlucky through this campaign. People may say different and that we didn't deserve it, but I think we should have beaten Wales home and away, and we could have got a better result against Serbia as well.

"But it is all ifs and buts. We are where we are because we didn't take our chances, so we will try and put those things right come Friday."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
