Scotland vs Spain lineups: Starting XIs, injury latest, confirmed team news for Euro 2024 qualifier today
Scotland give a start to Scott McTominay for tonight’s Euro 2024 qualifying showdown with Spain.
The Scots won their opening game on the road to Germany against Cyprus on Saturday courtesy of a late brace from the Manchester United midfielder, following John McGinn’s opener.
Manager Steve Clarke highlighted his side’s incomplete pressing game as the only downside of that 3-0 win and it’s therefore unsurprising that McTominay enters the starting XI this evening.
