So, with little over a month until our World Cup qualifying campaign begins, here is the low-down on our first opponents, Macedonia.
Macedonia became a member of FIFA and UEFA in their own right in 1994 after the breakup of the former Yugoslav Republic.
Since, the Nation has been through 4 Euro Championship Qualifying campaigns and 3 World Cup Qualifying campaigns, failing to make it through to any of the competitions.
There most memorable result to date, certainly for those in Britain, was a 0-0 draw with England in October 2006.
They have also picked up impressive results against the Netherlands and Croatia in recent years, with a 0-0 and 2-0 win respectively.
The current Macedonia squad is a good mix of young talent and experienced players, with their most notable player being Lazio Striker Goran Pandev. The Serie A striker has notched up 12 goals in 38 caps.
A very hard working and hard to break down team, this could be the first potential banana skin in a very tough Qualifying for us Scots.
