Steve Clarke has named his Scotland team to face Israel with six changes made from the side that defeated Czech Republic last month.

The national team boss’ plans were rocked when midfielder Stuart Armstrong tested positive for coronavirus and Ryan Christie and Kieran Tierney were forced to self-isolate. Scott McKenna, Liam Palmer and Oliver Burke have all withdrawn due to injury.

Clarke has rethought his side and brought in players for what looks to be a 3-5-2 formation with Lyndon Dykes and Oliver McBurnie in attack.

David Marshall starts in goal behind Liam Cooper, Declan Gallagher and Scott McTominay. Andy Robertson and Stephen O’Donnell look to be the wing backs.

Ryan Jack, John McGinn and Callum McGregor are playing as a midfield trio behind strikers Oli McBurnie and Lyndon Dykes.
