Chelsea's Cech doesn't rate Scotland's Euro chances

Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech is confident that Scotland will not reach the play-offs for the 2012 European Championships.

The Scots need to either beat Spain tomorrow night or hope that the Czechs lose to Lithuania to finish second in Group I and although there is plenty of positivity surrounding the Tartan camp, the Chelsea gloveman does not share their optimism.

"Scotland are set to play their last game," he said.

"The best they can get in Spain is a point. Maximum.

"We go to Lithuania with the second place right in our own hands.

"Us losing to Spain wasn't a problem because no one can expect to beat them.

"It comes down to how we play against Lithuania.

"I thought the group might go to the final game and that's what has happened.

"The play-offs start here. It's about three matches not just the two in the play-offs because this is a knockout game too.

"But if someone had said to me at the start that a win in Lithuania would take us to the play-offs I would have taken it."
