Steve Clarke has named his Scotland side to face Spain in the match that could see the national team reach Euro 2024.

Scotland will seal qualification for next year’s finals if they take a point from the match or if Norway drop points away to Cyprus.

Clarke’s side current sit at the top of qualifying group A after a run of victories that included a 2-0 win over Spain at Hampden.

Luis de la Fuente and his players have bounced back from that defeat, becoming Nations League champions before back-to-back wins over Georgia and Cyprus that saw them score 13 goals over two games.

Clarke has had decisions to make over his selection for the match in Seville after Kieran Tierney was ruled out of the remaining qualifiers with a hamstring injury.

The manager has handed a start to Scott McKenna and looks to have continued with a three-man central defence in Tierney’s absence.

Angus Gunn starts in goal, with McKenna alongside Jack Hendry and Ryan Porteous in defence.

Captain Andy Robertson and Aaron Hickey continue in the wing-back roles with Callum McGregor, John McGinn and Scott McTominay, who have scored nine goals between them in the qualifying campaign, play in midfield

Ryan Christie plays in support of striker Lyndon Dykes.

Zander Clark, Liam Kelly, Liam Cooper, Nathan Patterson, Greg Taylor, John Souttar, Stuart Armstrong, Kenny McLean, Lewis Ferguson, Billy Gilmour, Che Adams and Jacob Brown are on the bench.
