EURO 2020 GROUP D
Manager Steve Clarke Expectations were fairly low when the SFA turned to Clarke in May 2019 but he has done an excellent job by getting the very best from a group who arguably lack the quality of some of the squads who have fallen short over the last 20 years. Record P 19 W 8 D 5 L 6 All games Strengths • The midfield looks strong with Scott McTominay and John McGinn providing plenty of composure • Tierney and Robertson provide defensive class Weaknesses • Lack of quality and experience up front • General lack of pace at the back Prospects Scotland demonstrated a strong mentality towards the end of qualification and could prove to be difficult opponents if they reach the knockout stages. However, a tough section will be difficult to navigate. Inside info Alan Mcinally Former Scotland striker There is a wave of optimism ahead of the tournament and rightly so. We are at home to the Czechs first, hopefully in front of a crowd at Hampden, and I just can’t wait for it to start because that game is a big opportunity for the side to set their stall out.
