IN PICS: Scotland's Tartan Army invade London ahead of England clash!

SCOTLAND'S Tartan Army have invaded London ahead of tonight's clash with England!

The Three Lions will host the 'Auld Enemy' at Wembley, the first meeting between the two sides in 14 years.
And fans from across the border are making the most of the rare occasion - filling the capital with saltires and the sound of bagpipes!
Around 25,000 Scottish fans are expected at the match, with more than 2,500 piling into Trafalgar Square by lunchtime today.
Michael Connell, 48, travelled down from West Lothian for the game - but he only has one thing on his mind tonight.
"If we win, there will be a party. If we lose there will be an even bigger party but it will have been after 90 minutes of inconvenience," he said.
"It would be sweet if we could get something, a win, over England. It would be the best feeling in the world.
"We are passionate and we like to party."

And the partying Scots have proved they won't be surrendering their prime London spot at any point soon.
Amid the sea of blue and white flags, one schoolboy unfurled an England flag.
But he quickly pulled it down when it triggered a mass light-hearted chant of "What the f****** hell is that?" in his direction.
Scotland are ranked 50th in the Fifa rankings, with their fiercest rivals placed in 14th.
But the massed ranks of Scots are confident their side will overcome the odds against Roy Hodgson's team.
Oil worker Graham Johnston, from Aberdeenshire, said: "We have heart and that is what gets us through - right from the team, the players and the supporters. We are a small country with passion."
And, as one of his pals shouted: "We are rubbish at football but so are the English - they just think they are better!"
