The Tartan Army will be the underdogs heading into the competition.

Scotland manager Steve Clarke has named his 28-man provisional squad for the upcoming Euro 2024 finals in Germany, with some notable inclusions and exclusions sparking debate amongst fans.

The Tartan Army, known for their passionate support, will be eagerly analyzing the squad as they prepare for their first major tournament appearance in 23 years. Fresh off a dominant qualifying campaign that secured their spot with two games remaining, Clarke has opted for an experienced core with a sprinkle of new faces.

The squad will be looking to replicate the magic of 1998 when Scotland opened the World Cup in France. This time, they’ll face the host nation, Germany, at the Allianz Arena on June 14th in the tournament’s opening match.

Two uncapped players have earned their call-ups: defender Ross McCrorie, previously involved with the national team, and teenage sensation Ben Doak, who has impressed with the U-21s.

The inclusion of James Forrest, absent from the International scene for almost three years, is a testament to his strong finish with Celtic. Before heading to Germany for EURO 2024, where they’ll be based in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Scotland will have two warm-up matches.

On June 3rd, they’ll face Gibraltar in Faro, followed by a home send-off against Finland at Hampden Park on June 7th, a chance for the Tartan Army to roar their support.

With a blend of experience and exciting young talent, Clarke has assembled a squad capable of making a deep run in the tournament. The opening match against Germany will be a baptism by fire, but the passionate Tartan Army will be behind them every step of the way.

Scotland provisional squad for Euro 2024:

Goalkeepers: Zander Clark (Heart of Midlothian), Craig Gordon (Heart of Midlothian), Angus Gunn (Norwich), Liam Kelly (Motherwell)
