Strachan, who has been in charge of Scotland for 18 months, was in Brazil for the tournament and saw first-hand the substance and style of the team that decimated the hosts 7-1 in the semi-finals before winning the tournament.

Strachan's men will travel to Germany to face them on September 7 and he believes it is an exceptional position to be in.

"It will be a fantastic occasion," he said. "Most international teams, and most international managers and international coaches would love to be where we are on that night."

The 57-year-old also praised the German side for their performance on the international stage.

"The Germans are a team, with great players in it," he added. "I admire them. I like what they're doing, I like their attitude.

"Everything I believe makes a good football team is encapsulated in the Germans."

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
