Gibraltar vs Scotland: Preview, predictions and lineups

Scotland begin their preparations for Euro 2024 in the Algarve when they take on European minnows Gibraltar on Monday night.

Steve Clarke’s side enjoyed an impressive qualifying campaign, beating Spain on the way as they advanced into this summer’s major tournament alongside La Furia Roja.

However, they’ve got their work cut out if they’re to improve on their dire Euro 2020 performance. Scotland have been drawn into a tough Group A alongside hosts Germany, Switzerland and Hungary.

Clarke will doubtlessly use the extremities of his 28-man squad on Monday, although the Scottish boss could name the starting XI he plans to use against Germany the following Friday. However, their preparations took a massive blow before the weekend when it emerged striker Lyndon Dykes had suffered a leg injury in training and would miss Euro 2024.
