Is Scotland vs Austria on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch World Cup qualifier


Scotland begin their qualification campaign for the 2022 World Cup on Thursday when they host Austria in Glasgow.

Steve Clarke’s side will get a long-overdue taste of a major tournament finals this summer when they play in the Euros, but the key now for the Scots is to ensure there’s not as long a wait for the next time they mix it with the finest national sides – the 1998 World Cup was their last finals appearance.

That was also the last time Austria reached the finals of Fifa’s big tournament, though they did partake in the European Championships finals in both 2008 and 2016, with the current squad rather highly regarded.

Denmark, Israel, Moldova and the Faroe Islands are the other sides in the group – several of which Scotland will feel they can beat, making this opening match perhaps a case of being more important to simply not lose.

That might be easier said than done, with Austria unbeaten in the last six.
