Adam taking aim at England
Charlie Adam says there is no chance of Scotland suffering from an inferiority complex when they face England at Wembley.
Gordon Strachan's side will travel to the home of English football on Wednesday for an encounter which has been organised as part of the ongoing 150-year celebrations for the Football Association.
It will be the first time since 1999 - in a Euro 2000 play-off - that the two nations have gone head-to-head in an international contest.
Stoke midfielder Adam admits he cannot wait to sample what promises to be an electric atmosphere and has warned England that Scotland are taking the game extremely seriously and have their sights set on another notable scalp.
He told the Daily Record: "Players of previous generations were able to regard the meeting with England as an annual event. But it's 14 years since our two countries last met and for me that makes this game a special occasion I can always look back on.
"I've spoken to the players from other countries who have played England at Wembley and they tell me the atmosphere on those occasions is incredible. But this time there will be 20,000 Scottish fans in the ground and they're going to present England with a challenging atmosphere.
"They will respect us as players because so many of us play down here and the hype surrounding the game will mean the pressure will lie with the English lads.
"We certainly won't feel inferior to them because a lot of us have played against Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard. That makes Wednesday night 11 v 11 without any distractions being drawn between who comes from which country."
