Southampton forward Che Adams will miss the final game of the Premier League campaign with a groin injury, but manager Ralph Hasenhuttl does not expect him to be a doubt for Scotland at Euro 2020.

Along with Saints midfielder Stuart Armstrong, Adams has been named in Steve Clarke’s 26-man squad for this summer’s tournament, which starts against the Czech Republic at Hampden Park on June 14.

Former England Under-20 international Adams scored against the Faroe Islands in a 2022 World Cup qualifier in March after committing his future to Scotland.

Hasenhuttl said ahead of Sunday’s trip to West Ham: “Che cannot play on the weekend because he has a small groin injury, so he will also definitely be out.

“No (it is not a serious problem), it is five to 10 days, so his chance for the weekend is a small one.

“But we didn’t take the risk because we know he has the Euros coming up, which for him is a big tournament and I think it’s not a big issue for him.”
