It’s a bit dismal that the Tartan Army won’t be able to pack out Hampden (and Wembley) but here we go. With Andy Robertson, John McGinn, Kiernan Tierney, Ché Adams, Kevin Nisbet and Scott McTominay in the squad and the uncapped young team of Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour, Celtic’s David Turnbull and Ranger’s Nathan Patterson being given a chance – this is the most exciting Scotland squad for a generation.
Injuries to squad regulars Ryan Jack, Kenny McLean and Oli McBurnie have opened the door to new talent, as has UEFA’s decision to allow countries at Euro 2020 to select 26 players given him more room for manoeuvre.
Scotland are in Group D and will face Czech Republic on 14 June, followed by England on 18 June, and Croatia on 22 June. Their first and third games will be played at Hampden in front of 12,000 fans.
