Scott Brown Quickly Shuts Down Suggestion He Might Support England

Scott Brown Quickly Shuts Down Suggestion He Might Support England

Although the World Cup still feels like it is only getting started, Champions League football will take its first tentative step towards next year's final in Madrid tomorrow afternoon when the first qualifying round is drawn. Carefully under consideration for Cork City fans, Celtic will also find out their opening opponents, and their captain Scott Brown was discussing the club's hopes for the year ahead.

Speaking to BBC Scotland, Brown outlined that the 'aim is, at this moment, just to make sure that we win every game going into the qualifiers. We've done well in it, the last two years to get into it.'

Despite the anticipation surrounding tomorrow's draw however, reporters couldn't help but ask Brown - a retired Scottish international - whether he had been paying attention to festivities in Russia, and, if he would perhaps be cheering on England in their opener tonight against Tunisia.

In short, he won't be, no.
