Scotland Manager Says England Game Will Gauge Scotland Progress

Scotland manager Steve Clarke says Tomorrow’s friendly against England will be the perfect barometer of the progress his team has made.

Scotland are on the brink of reaching Euro 2024 after winning all five qualifiers and have risen 20 places to 30th in the world ranking under Clarke.

The Scotland boss expects “a competitive friendly, if you can have such a thing” at Hampden Park, not least because some players from the same club will be facing each other on the international stage.

He believes the run of matches which will mean Scotland take on England, followed by Spain in an away qualifier, and then a friendly against France in October and then, will help accelerate the development of his players ahead of what is now a very likely Euro 2024 campaign.

Scotland need just two points from their final three qualifiers to guarantee an appearance at back-to-back European Championships, although their place in next summer’s finals could also be secured on Tuesday if Norway and Georgia draw in Oslo.

When asked about England being keen to secure Elliot Anderson after the Newcastle United midfielder pulled out of Scotland’s squad for the qualifier with Cyprus and Tuesday’s friendly, Clarke said “we like him too, so now he has a choice to make”.
