Fletcher set for Scotland milestone

06 September 2010 01:18
Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher will enter Scotland's hall of fame when he collects his 50th cap against Liechtenstein at Hampden Park. But rather than his personal milestone, the Reds' dynamo is focused on qualification for Euro 2012. "With respect for qualifying for Euros, then there can be no slip-ups," said the Scotland captain. "If we can get three points (against Liechtenstein) and then four points from the two games, then it's a satisfactory start and it's not too bad a position from then on. "We've got games coming up against Czech Republic and Spain, so that's why it's imperative against Liechtenstein to get three points. "Anything other than that is disastrous towards qualifying." Sir Alex Ferguson offered his congratulations as Fletcher left United for the international break, but the midfielder will wait until after the game to reflect on his international career thus far. Fletcher added: "We spoke about it before we left and he said 'enjoy the moment'. "It is hard to enjoy the moment, because my focus is on winning the game. "Hopefully with the three points and a nice win I can look back and enjoy the fact that I've gained 50 caps for my country and be very proud of that." Has Fletcher finally silenced his doubters? Have your say.
