West Brom's Morrison urges Scotland to beat Belgium to keep WC hopes alive

James Morrison believes it is vital for Scotland to defeat Belgium in their next World Cup qualifier if they are to have any chance of making it to Brazil 2014.

The West Bromwich Albion midfielder opened the scoring in the 27th minute against Wales in Cardiff last night before Gareth Bale netted twice to down the Scots 2-1.

The defeat left Craig Levein's side sitting above only Macedonia on the Group A table with two points from three outings and Morrison feels victory from Tuesday's meeting with group leaders Belgium in Brussels is absolutely essential.

"There is probably a little bit of hope if we win in Belgium," he said.

"We get that belief again and that's all we can do. We've got to regroup quickly or else the group is going to pass us by.

"Basically, we've got to win in Belgium. We've just got to remain positive, that's all we can do."
