Steve Clarke revealed that Kieran Tierney is fit to face England in their Euro 2020 match on Friday. The Arsenal defender had missed the opening match against the Czech republic due to injury but returned to light training on Tuesday. Clarke revealed that Tierney had taken a slight knock in training but has now trained fully with the squad ahead of the England match.
“Everybody fit and available, including Kieran,” Steve Clarke said about Kieran Tierney at Euro 2020 on Thursday. “It’s good news for Kieran, it’s good news for us, it’s good news for the Scottish supporters, so hopefully we can back all that up with a good result. He’s trained fully the last two days, so he’s available for the whole game.”
“The objective when we started this tournament was to get enough points to get out of the group stage and into the knockout stage for the first time and we still have that in front of us,” Clarke added. “So we hope to get something out of the game against England and also we have to get something from the game against Croatia as well. So we look forward to the next two games.”
Scotland played some good possession football against the Czech Republic and had 19 shots but failed to convert any of the chances. If Scotland loses to England, they might not be out of contention for the knockout stages but would then have to rely on other results to go their way.
