Dons boss Derek McInnes today urged Scotland to shock England and deliver a boost to the national game.
Gordon Strachan’s Scots face the Auld Enemy in a critical World Cup 2018 qualifier at Wembley on Friday.
McInnes said: “Any positive result for Scotland at Wembley will be a massive shot in the arm for us.”
Defeat would be a hammer blow to hopes of ending a two-decade absence from major finals dating back to France 1998.
Scotland trail Group F leaders England by three points.
No Aberdeen player was named in Strachan’s squad for the crunch showdown at a packed-out Wembley.
However, that disappointment is forgotten as McInnes, capped twice, gets right behind Strachan’s side for the big clash with the Auld Enemy.
He said: “Although it will be tough it is a game we can definitely get something from.
“If Scotland can go and get a result it would be brilliant, and they are capable of achieving that.
“Obviously, a lot of things will have to go Scotland’s way and they will have to do a lot of things right at Wembley.
“In terms of getting more belief, momentum and confidence, a positive result would do us the world of good.”
