Scotland will play the Faroe Islands later today in a friendly match at Pittodrie. The game will be streaming live on Sky Player to viewers in the UK, but if you live abroad and connect using Expat Surfer, you won’t need to search out dodgy internet sites to see the match.

Levein has received some criticism for scheduling this friendly but any Scotland fan knows that we always have trouble against the so-called “smaller” teams so it could be worthwhile. Levein has also announced that Villa’s Barry Bannan and Liverpool’s Danny Wilson will start tonight.

The Scotland v Faroes game kicks off at 8pm (UK time) and is live on Sky Sports 1. Using Expat Surfer, Scots abroad can watch the match through Sky Player if you have been authorised by someone with a Sky subscription. (Sky subscribers can authorize up to 4 computers). More info below.
