The Tartan Army would look to navigate past the group stage.

Scotland is one of the teams to watch ahead of the 2024 UEFA European Championships in Germany. While they are not favorites to win the competition, the national team has enough talent to upset any major European nation on their day.

With players like Liverpool’s Andrew Robertson and Manchester United’s Scott McTominay in the squad, one cannot underestimate The Tartan Army. That said, navigating past a difficult Group A that includes hosts Germany, Hungary, and Switzerland will be challenging for Steve Clarke and the company.

The side plays in the inaugural fixture of the 2024 UEFA European Championships against the Germans and will hope to silence the crowd with an upset. As the opening fixture nears, here is a look at the predicted lineup for Scotland in the forthcoming tournament:

Scotland predicted lineup (Formation: 3-4-2-1) :

GK – Angus Gunn

Angus Gunn has been a mainstay in the Scotland national team throughout the European Championship qualifiers. The custodian is set to retain his place as the starting goalkeeper, aiming to help the team keep the opposition at bay and concede as few goals as possible.

RCB – Jack Hendry

Jack Hendry is a solid defender who plays for Al-Ettifaq in the Saudi Professional League. The 29-year-old has made 24 appearances for the Scotland national team and has the right-center back position locked down.

CB – Grant Hanley

Grant Hanley is a major piece of the puzzle. He leads the defensive line astutely, and his performances will be key if Scotland aims to qualify for the knockout stages. The 32-year-old Norwich City player will look to use his experience to deliver a positive showing.

LCB – Kieran Tierney

Since Andy Robertson is undroppable for Scotland, Kieran Tierney has settled into a center-back role. The former Arsenal defender has good distribution qualities and can dribble out of tricky situations. His reading of the game will be crucial when The Tartan Army commences its campaign in Germany.

RWB – Anthony Ralston

Anthony Ralston has been promising in the right wing-back role and was competing for a starting place on the right flank with Nathan Patterson. However, with injuries affecting the latter’s inclusion, it seems like Ralston will be the main choice at right-back for Scotland at the 2024 European Championships in Germany.

CM – Billy Gilmour

Billy Gilmour is one of the notable names in Scotland’s midfield. The 23-year-old has grown in stature for both club and country. He plays for Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League and has earned 19 caps for the Scotland national team.

CM – Callum McGregor

Callum McGregor, who captains Scottish giants Celtic, has returned to fitness after a recent injury. Judging by his performance in a recent 2-2 draw with Finland, the 30-year-old will likely start for Scotland at the Euros.

LWB – Andrew Robertson

Andrew Robertson is one of the key players for Scotland. The Liverpool FC defender is a major figure in the lineup who will surely be the focus of attention. His experience and mentality will be crucial in helping Scotland qualify for the knockout stages.

CAM – John McGinn

John McGinn played a major role in Aston Villa’s highly impressive fourth-place finish in the 2023-24 season of the Premier League. Ensuring UEFA Champions League qualification was a huge achievement, and McGinn hopes to replicate his club performances on the international stage.

CAM – Scott McTominay

Scott McTominay has reinvented himself as a goalscoring midfielder for Scotland and enjoys a similar role at Manchester United under manager Erik ten Hag. The 27-year-old must be clinical once again for The Tartan Army as they look to navigate through a tricky Group A that includes hosts Germany, Switzerland, and Hungary.

ST – Lawrence Shankland

Lawrence Shankland is an in-form striker who recorded 24 goals for Hearts in the Scottish Premiership’s 2023-24 campaign, finishing as the top scorer. He will be a focal point in attack, and the country’s chances of success rely on his performances.
