The likes of Manchester United star Scott McTominay, Motherwell’s Stephen O’Donnell and national sweetheart Ryan Christie can enhance their Scotland hero status tomorrow as a famous XI is selected.

Steve Clarke’s side will face Czech Republic on Monday at Euro 2020, the nation’s first game at a major tournament since 1998. There are several key decisions to make for Clarke, from whether Billy Gilmour starts, to swapping McTominay from his Manchester United midfield role to a right-sided centre-back in a 3-5-2.

Here’s our predicted Scotland XI against Czech Republic at Hampden Park.

Formation – 3-5-2

Goalkeeper – David Marshall

Scotland’s number one is one a few guaranteed starters against the Czechs.

Defence – Declan Gallagher, Grant Hanley, Kieran Tierney

Clarke used this defence in the final friendly game against Luxembourg and we think he’ll go with it again. Gallagher has impressed in defence alongside Hanley while Tierney is arguably Scotland’s best player.

Wing-backs – Stephen O’Donnell, Andy Robertson

Both have been Clarke’s go-to options throughout the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign and that won’t change.

Midfield – Scott McTominay, Callum McGregor, John McGinn

McTominay might feature in defence but the Manchester United player will play in his natural midfield role, we think. The experience of McGregor and McGinn will be next to him.

Attack – Lyndon Dykes, Che Adams

The attacking duo linked well in the Luxembourg game, Dykes providing an assist for Adams. The QPR forward will likely do the hard yards for Adams, who will be expected to be the clinical forward.
