The Tartan Army will take on hosts Germany for the Euro 2024 event opener.

The days of 1–11 are long gone. Even international teams now have squad numbers in the modern football world.

Scotland are no exception. Steve Clarke’s team’s shirt numbers are out for the Euro 2024. After landing at the Munich airport, the Tartan Army moved to their official base for the competition organised by Germany. The base happens to be in the Bavarian Alps, in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.

With UEFA allowing just 26 players, Clarke had to make some difficult decisions. Hearts stalwart Craig Gordon and Rangers defender John Souttar, a former Tynecastle teammate, were left off the roster.

Due to an injury sustained during training, Lyndon Dykes will not be competing in the competition. So it should come as no surprise that Lawrence Shankland ended up with his No. 9 shirt. The Jambos’ top scorer was on fire the previous season, but it’s unclear if the Hearts striker will start on Friday night in Munich against Germany or Che Adams.

Is Lawrence Shankland the starting striker now that he has been given the number nine jersey? Maybe, maybe not. Adams will be donning the number ten at Euro 2024, the usual number in which we see him play for Southampton at club level.

As anticipated, Anthony Ralston, with number two on his back, appears to be the top choice for the right wing-back position. Ralston is likely to be selected ahead of Ross McCrorie for the starting XI spot. Important players like Andy Robertson, Kieran Tierney, Scott McTominay and John McGinn are among the others given numbers between one and eleven.
