Martinez Losa on Israel, protests & Lyon link

Scotland head coach Pedro Martinez Losa has been speaking to the media before Friday's Euro 2025 qualifier against Israel at Hampden.

Here are the key points:

  • Preparations have been "very good" over in Spain and Scotland are "really motivated" to go and take on Israel at Hampden.

  • The whole squad is fit and ready for the game.

  • The fact it is behind closed doors is done "with the best interests of everyone" in mind by organisers with protests expected.

  • Scotland are keeping "maximum focus" on the game and Martinez Losa had a chat with the "leadership group" about the situation, but everyone is focused on playing.

  • The Scotland boss confirmed he addressed the squad after speculation linking him to the Lyon job, and reiterated he was "totally committed" to Scotland.
