Nigeria sink Seychelles to revive Cup of Nations bid

By

Scotland face Albania in their first Nations League match on Monday with long-suffering fans hoping they can take the first step on the road to ending a 20-year absence from major tournaments. The new competition is designed to replace international friendlies with more competitive matches and also provides a second route to qualification for the European Championship. And with Glasgow's Hampden Park one of the host venues for the tournament in 2020, it gives Alex McLeish's team, thumped 4-0 by Belgium in a friendly on Friday, added incentive to qualify.
