Steve Clarke has made seven changes to his Scotland team for their final Euro 2020 warm-up match, against Luxembourg on Sunday evening.

The national team boss saw a reshaped team earn a confidence-building 2-2 draw against Netherlands on Wednesday but had seven players out for the game in Portugal. The head coach and his staff had decided to exercise caution and leave six players at the training base following John Fleck’s positive Covid test.

The players, apart from Fleck, have returned to the squad for the match against Luxembourg and Clarke has made seven changes to his starting line-up.

Only Andy Robertson, Kieran Tierney, Callum McGregor and Lyndon Dykes remain from the side that started against the Dutch.

David Marshall starts in goal with Tierney, Grant Hanley and Declan Gallagher playing in defence. Robertson remains in the left wing-back position and Stephen O’Donnell returns to start on the right flank.

McGregor is joined by John McGinn and Scott McTominay in midfield with Che Adams partnering Dykes in attack.

The friendly in Luxembourg is Scotland’s last match before they play Czech Republic in their first Euro 2020 group game on June 14.
