Strachan to name Scotland squad

Written by
Scotland coach Gordon Strachan

Gordon Strachan’s Scotland are fourth in Euro 2016 qualifying Group D

Gordon Strachan is due to name his Scotland squad for the final Euro 2016 qualifiers against Poland and Gibraltar later on Tuesday.

The Scots can make the play-offs if they take at least four more points and other Group D results go their way.

Poland, who

drew with Scotland

earlier in the campaign, visit Hampden on 8 October before Strachan’s side face Gibraltar in Portugal on 11 October.

Celtic’s Charlie Mulgrew may miss Scotland’s games with a thigh strain.

If the Scots get four points and Republic of Ireland lose to both Germany and Poland, Strachan’s side will claim the play-off berth.

Another possible scenario is the Irish qualifying automatically with current group leaders Germany and Scotland pipping Poland to third place and the play-off. For this, the Scots would need two wins and for Poland to lose to Ireland.

In September’s double-header, Scotland lost to both



world champions Germany.

However, they have a better head-to-head record from their two games against Martin O’Neill’s Republic of Ireland and would hold the same advantage over Poland if Adam Nawałka’s side lose in Glasgow.
