Scotland will be doing their utmost to restore some pride when they meet Croatia this week says Robert Snodgrass.

Scotland will be doing their utmost to restore some pride when they meet Croatia this week says Robert Snodgrass.

The Scots meet Croatia in World Cup qualifying in Zagreb on Friday and although Gordon Strachan’s men have no chance of making it to Brazil 2014, Norwich City winger Snodgrass says there will be a real effort to get a positive result against a quality side.

"I think the table says it all," he told the Daily Record. "We are down at the bottom, they are fighting at the top and that's what people look at.

"But there is a level of pride at stake and a belief that we can get a result.

"I would hate to be in a changing room with lads that didn't believe they could win a game.

"It is a matter of pride. Most footballers I know want to win every training session never mind games and that's what it will take to get a result there on Friday.

"It is a team game and everyone needs to pull in the same direction to try to get a result, especially against a tough Croatia side.

"We have been very unlucky during this campaign.

"People might think differently but I think we should have beaten Wales home and away and we could have got a better result against Serbia.

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