Euro 2020 Group D: Scotland – Players To Watch

Football News

Euro 2020 Scotland

Scotland qualified for Euro 2020 via the playoffs having passed two grueling tests against Israel and Serbia. They beat the latter 5-4 in an intense penalty shootout. Their qualification ended a 22-year wait for an international tournament. Scotland will face even tougher tests against England, Croatia, and Czech Republic in Group D.

Goalkeeper: David Marshall

David Marshall is a goalkeeper with loads of experience. He was the captain of Derby County in the 2020/21 Championship season. Marshall has stiff competition from veteran Craig Gordan but has hold of the Number 1 jersey at the moment.

Defender: Andrew Robertson

Andrew Robertson is the captain of Scotland and the most influential player on the team. He is arguably the best left-back in the world providing world-class attacking play from the left. He is known for his crunching tackles for both club and country. Along with Kieran Tierney, Scotland will be hoping the duo come to the fore at Euro 2020.

Midfielder: Scott McTominay

Scott McTominay is part of arguably the best midfield in Scottish history. McTominay has continued to go from strength to strength for the club as well as the country. His unique combination of resilience, athleticism, and driving runs makes him a force to reckon with.

Forward: Che Adams

Leicester-born Adams was the go-to No.9 for Clarke in the March internationals after switching allegiance to Scotland and making his debut, and he will likely continue leading the line in June. The Southampton striker has played three times for Scotland so far, coming off the bench for his debut against Austria in World Cup qualifying, before starting against Israel and Faroe Islands.

Predicted Lineup:

David Marshall; Andrew Robertson, Kieran Tierney, Grant Hanley, Scott McTominay, Stephen O’Donnell; Callum McGregor, John McGinn; Ryan Fraser, Che Adams, Ryan Christie
