Team news for Scotland vs. Czech Republic
Steve Clarke must make some difficult decisions.
Centre-backs Declan Gallagher, Grant Hanley, Jack Hendry, Scott McKenna, and Liam Cooper have all performed admirably for him at times, but there are no obvious replacements for Kieran Tierney in the back three.
Clarke must also decide whether to go with two center-forwards or pair Lyndon Dykes and Che Adams with an attacking midfielder like Ryan Christie or Ryan Fraser.
