Soccer-Scotland and Wales seek to arrest World Cup slump

LONDON, Oct 11 (Reuters) – Since Jock Stein helped guide Scotland to the 1986 World Cup and sadly died in the process after celebrating a late equaliser in the decisive qualifying match against Wales, the national team has been in steady decline.

Two more World Cup appearances since in 1990 and 1998 are a paltry return for the passionate Scottish fans, whose side travel to Wales on Friday hoping for a win to boost hopes of a long-awaited return to the pinnacle of soccer in 2014.
