Scotland’s Nations League clash away to Ukraine will be played in Krakow, the Ukrainian FA has announced.

The group game in September cannot be played in Ukraine due to the Russian invasion, and there had been speculation about where the teams would play.

It has now been confirmed that Steve Clarke and his players will travel to play at the Józef Pilsudski Kraków Stadium on September 27.

The game will be the final fixture in a Nations League group that has been a mixed bag for Scotland so far.

The national team began their campaign with a 2-0 win over Armenia at Hampden, but then suffered a surprise 3-0 defeat to Republic of Ireland in Dublin.

A 4-1 away win in Armenia put the campaign back on track but Clarke and his team have their work cut out to win the group and secure promotion to the top tier of the competition.

Scotland trail Ukraine by one point but welcome Oleksandr Petrakov’s team to Hampden on September 21 and have the return game against Ireland three days later before the match in Poland that could turn out to be the group decider.

The team are also keen to beat Ukraine after the disappointment of defeat in the World Cup play-off in June. Ukraine put on an impressive display to win 3-1 and reach the play-off final but were beaten by Wales and missed out on Qatar 2022.
