Steve Clarke has named his starting line-up to take on Spain at Hampden in their second qualifier for Euro 2024.

The Scotland manager has made three changes from their opening game victory with Ryan Jack, Stuart Armstrong and injured Che Adams dropping out and replaced by Scott McTominay, Ryan Christie and Lyndon Dykes.

Both sides opened their campaigns with 3-0 home wins against Cyprus and Norway respectively and will be looking to take another step towards the tournament being held in Germany next summer.

Angus Gunn, who made his international debut against the Cypriots, again starts in goal in the place of injured Craig Gordon.

He plays in front of a three man defence of Grant Hanley, Ryan Porteous and Kieran Tierney with Aaron Hickey and captain Andy Robertson playing at right and left wing-back.

John McGinn scored the opener in the 3-0 win on Saturday and he starts in midfield alongside Celtic captain Callum McGregor and Scott McTominay with Ryan Christie supporting lone front-man Lyndon Dykes in the absence of Southampton forward Che Adams.

Adams pulled out of the squad on Sunday in what will be a blow to Clarke’s plans as he looks to shock to former world champions.

Hearts forward Lawrence Shankland was brought in as his replacement and is named among the subs alongside the likes of Jacob Brown, Lewis Ferguson, Billy Gilmour and Ryan Jack who drops to the bench after starting the opener as does Stuart Armstrong.

Scotland team to play Spain: Gunn, Hickey, Porteous, Hanley, Tierney, Robertson, McTominay, McGregor, McGinn, Christie, Dykes.

Spain team: Kepa, Porro, Garcia, Martinez, Gaya, Rodrigo, Merino, Yeremy, Ceballos, Oyarzabal, Matto.
