#SWNT: St Mirren FC to host crucial clash with Swiss

Scotland will take on Switzerland at the newly renamed The Simple Digital Arena on Thursday 30 August, kick-off 7.35pm as World Cup Qualification intensifies, reports scottishfa.co.uk.

Switzerland are the top ranked side in Group 2 and currently lead the way by three points.

Following the dramatic 3-2 win over Poland, Scotland go into the match knowing a win against the Swiss by two clear goals, coupled with a victory against Albania would secure a place at their first World Cup.

The side that finishes top of their pool automatically qualifies for the World Cup in France 2019.

The four best runners up will then enter a play-off with one of the four teams eventually emerging as a qualifier for the tournament.

Scotland’s match against Albania will take place on Tuesday, 4 September, kick-off 4pm (UK time) and the game will be played at The Loro Boriçi Stadium in Shkoder.

Ticket details for Scotland v Switzerland are yet to be confirmed.
