Scotland and Canada have met on five previous occasions, all of which have been friendly matches won by Scotland. The two nations met three times in eight days in 1983, with Scotland registering three comfortable victories.


The first game saw Gordon Strachan and Mark McGhee net in a 2-0 victory, before Charlie Nicholas, Richard Gough and Graeme Souness scored in a 3-0 win four days later. The trio of triumphs over Canada was then completed in Toronto thanks to an Andy Gray brace.


The two teams have met twice more since, with two more 3-1 wins for Scotland. In 1992, goals from Gary McAllister (2) and Ally McCoist guided their side to victory and then in 2002, Stevie Crawford (2) and Steven Thompson earned Scotland their first win on home soil against Canada.


12 June 1983 – Vancouver – Canada 0-2 Scotland – International Friendly


16 June 1983 – Edmonton – Canada 0-3 Scotland – International Friendly


20 June 1983 – Toronto – Canada 0-2 Scotland – International Friendly


21 May 1992 – Toronto – Canada 1-3 Scotland – International Friendly


15 October 2002 – Edinburgh – Scotland 3-1 Canada – International Friendly





The first meetings between the two nations came during the qualifying campaign for the 2006 World Cup.


Following a goalless draw at Hampden Park under Berti Vogts in 2004, Scotland won the reverse fixture in Celje twelve months later with a convincing display.


Goals from Darren Fletcher, James McFadden and Paul Hartley earned new manager Walter Smith victory at the end of a campaign where Scotland were already eliminated.


The only other fixture between Scotland and Slovenia came in a friendly match in Koper in 2012. Christophe Berra earned Scotland a draw shortly before half-time, after Andraz Kirm had given the hosts the lead.


8 September 2004 – Hampden – Scotland 0-0 Slovenia – 2006 World Cup Qualifier


12 October 2005 – Celje – Slovenia 0-3 Scotland – 2006 World Cup Qualifier


29 February 2012 – Koper – Slovenia 1-1 Scotland – International Friendly
