Norwich City's Scottish striker Steven Naismith wants to end the 'losing feeling' against England.
Wembley hosts England against Scotland in a World Cup qualifier on Friday night - the first competitive game between the teams since the Euro 2000 play-offs – they won that game 1-0 but lost 2-1 on aggregate.
Naismith said: 'Holland at home, we played great – got beat 1-0. Against Spain, the world champions, we concede in the last minute and lose 3-2.
'There have been so many games like that. Hopefully we are due one, like people say. We have been so close so many times, it is about time that we changed.
'Against Spain, okay, I scored a great goal against a great team but we lost. Over my time in the international team, it has been like that for too long.

'We have got match-winners. Look at Robert Snodgrass. He comes back at the weekend there for Hull and is a match-winner.
'We maybe don't have as many of those players as some, but we do have guys with quality who can do damage. I don`t think it's about luck. There might be a small element of that but we can`t accept the hard luck story.
