KOREA WE GO; It's Either Korea or Japan as the Tartan Army Packs Its Bags - So Here's Our Cut-out-and-Keep Guide


Richardson, Pete, Daily Record (Glasgow, Scotland)


EVERY fan knows the drill. Scotland have just beaten a football midget with a last-gasp goal after being chased all over the park, so we're officially world-beaters and a dead cert for the World Cup.

With only seven qualifiers left, our heroic conquest of Latvia on Saturday means our group rivals for 2002 might as well throw in the towel.

Only one question remains for the Tartan Army, unrivalled as the world's most optimistic body of men and women. Where do we want to be based when we qualify?

Both Japan and South Korea share one attractive feature - we've never really been there before.

Previous campaigns mean there are precious few bits of the planet not to have experienced that Tartan Army magic. So a trip to either country will be a new adventure for us, not to mention the locals.

Both have fascinating ancient histories and cultures we can ignore while we go to the pub.

We can safely assume neither likes the English much - after all, who does? And that song about a certain Mr Hill will be just as tough to translate into either language, although experience suggests we'll manage it.

Like many Tartan Army foot- soldiers, John McKinnon from Skye is torn. The 28-year-old said: "I'd think Japan would be the best bet as a more modern country, but we have heard the beer is a bit pricey.

"Wherever we go we will have a party and enjoy ourselves.

"I'm sure the Koreans and Japanese will both hope Scotland qualify and bring our unique fans."

Obviously we'll all end up in Japan sooner or later, since they're going to play the final in Tokyo.

But to help you make the vital decision on where to party before we win, why not consult our handy travel guides below?

Better choose quickly before we lose our next game, since that will of course make us the official worst team on the planet with no more chance of getting to Japan than a supermodels' sumo team.

Or you could just book a trip anyway to see England get gubbed.
