Clarke rings changes for France test as Scotland take on World Cup finalists SNS Group

Steve Clarke has named his Scotland team to take on France in Lille.

The national team are playing the World Cup finalists in their first game since their place at Euro 2024 was secured when Spain beat Norway on Sunday.

Clarke has decided to ring the changes for Tuesday night’s game with the likes of Liam Kelly, Kenny McLean and Lewis Ferguson brought in to start the game.

Motherwell keeper Kelly is earning his first cap after being part of numerous squads over the last couple of years.

He starts in goals behind a back three of Liam Cooper, Jack Hendy and Scott McKenna with Greg Taylor and Nathan Patterson at left and right wing-back.

McLean starts in a four man midfield beside Billy Gilmour, Ferguson and McTominay who will be looking to support lone front-man Che Adams.

France have named a full strength with PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe, who scored a World Cup final hat-trick last year, starting in a front three beside Olivier Giroud and Ousman Dembele.

Security for the match has been heightened following a suspected terror attack in Brussels that left two Sweden fans dead before their qualifier against Belgium.
