Scotland Lose Tierney For Euro 2020 Opener
Glasgow, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 14th Jun, 2021 ) :Scotland were dealt a massive blow ahead of their first major tournament match for 23 years with Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney ruled out of Monday's Euro 2020 clash with the Czech Republic.
Tierney has been one of the most consistent performers during Scotland's improvement under Steve Clarke over the past two years, deputising at centre-back to allow captain Andy Robertson to play in his natural role as a left-back.
West Ham duo Vladimir Coufal and Tomas Soucek start, while Bayer Leverkusen's Patrik Schick leads the line up front.
Scotland (5-3-2) David Marshall; Stephen O'Donnell, Jack Hendry, Liam Cooper, Grant Hanley, Andy Robertson (capt); Scott McTominay, Callum McGregor, John McGinn; Lyndon Dykes, Ryan Christie Coach: Steve Clarke Czech Republic (4-2-3-1) Tomas Vaclik; Vladimir Coufal, Ondrej Celustka, Tomas Kalas, Jan Boril; Tomas Soucek, Alex Kral; Lukas Masopust, Vladimir Darida (capt), Jakub Jankto; Patrik Schick Coach: Jaroslav Silhavy Referee: Daniel Siebert (GER)
