Well done Scotland!

What a fantastic result for Scotland with a 1-0 victory over France in the European Championship qualifying match.

I am English and very proud of it and I don't go along with the idea that we English should only root for England.

Scotland deserves our support as part of the UK and I think it was a fabulous achievement for the Scots to triumph over France who are arguably the best football team in the world.

It is a shame that England – who drew 0-0 with Macedonia - could not reproduce the good form they have shown in the previous three matches they have played.

Today it is the turn of Scotland to deservedly earn all the plaudits and I hope they qualify for the finals in 2008.
