Robert Snodgrass hopes to complete a memorable week by helping Scotland get off to a flier against Serbia in their opening 2014 World Cup qualifier at Hampden on Saturday.

Snodgrass: Three points against Serbia would top the week off

The Glaswegian, who celebrates his 25th birthday on Friday, scored his first Barclays Premier League goal for Norwich following his close-season move from Leeds in a 1-1 draw at Tottenham at the weekend.

Now he is focusing on getting maximum points against the Serbs before the visit of Macedonia next Tuesday night.

"Not so much turning 25," the former Livingston player smiled when asked about the potential for a great week.

"I'm getting older but I am getting more experienced by playing down south and scoring and just being here with the squad is good.

"But for us to pick up maximum points would top it all off.

"Everyone is raring to go and there would be no better way than kicking off the campaign with a win at Hampden.

"We wouldn't be here if we didn't think we would get maximum points from both games and we will approach both games looking to win them.

"Brazil is what all the lads are driving towards and it will take hard work and endeavour.

"Saturday will be the massive test for us to see if all the hard work is paying off."

Snodgrass also notched in his first start for the national team in a 2-1 friendly win over Denmark at Hampden last August.

However, the former Scotland Under-21 player is setting aside all thoughts of personal glory and is focusing only making a perfect start to the campaign.

"I feel good, especially after getting a goal in the Premier League and I am glad it has come," he said.

"And it would be good to get on the scoresheet on Saturday but as I said before, it's not about individuals, it is about team performances and I would gladly take three points any day."
