Luxembourg vs Scotland build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Though they are certainly seen as minnows on the international stage, Luxembourg have been much improved of late, recently beating the Republic Ireland 1-0, going 1-0 ahead against Portugal before losing 3-1, and only losing 1-0 to Norway thanks to a late Erling Haaland goal.
Even so, Clarke will see this match as the perfect chance for his side to get among the goals and play with some freedom ahead of next week’s big kick-off against the Czech Republic. Scotland drew 2-2 with the Netherlands in mid-week after twice going ahead and although Clarke would have craved a victory against such illustrious opposition, the performance itself offers plenty of optimism.
- Luxembourg (vs Norway): Moris; Da Graca, Jans, Mahmutovic, Carlson, Pinto; Thill, Sinani, Martins Pereira; Deville, Rodrigues.
- Scotland (vs Netherlands): Gordon; Forrest, Hendry, Cooper, Tierney, Robertson; Turnbull, McGregor, Armstrong; Christie, Dykes.
Striker Striker Daniel da Mota is in line to make his 100th appearance for Luxembourg on Sunday with seven goals scored during that time.
Scotland didn’t pick up any injuries against the Netherlands but Clarke is expected to shuffle his pack to allow other players a chance to state their case ahead of the Euros next week.

Player to watch: Billy Gilmour
After coming off the bench late on against the Netherlands, Billy Gilmour is one of the Scotland players who will be looking to force his way into Clarke’s starting XI on Sunday night.
The Chelsea youngster has enjoyed a good start to life as a professional footballer over the past two years, making 22 appearances for Chelsea, including two in the Champions League as the Blues lifted the title, despite not yet being 20 years old.
According to Andy Robertson, another Scotland international to recently lift Europe’s biggest club title, the experience gained in that competition should serve Gilmour well, while the Liverpool left-back has been impressed by what he’s seen from his young teammate so far.
“To be able to get a Champions League winner’s medal so early is incredible but I don’t believe that will be him finished,” Robertson said of Gilmour recently. “He will be hungry for more now. He had a taste for success and for me and for all the Liverpool lads it drove us forward the next season to go and win the Premier League.
“When you get that feeling, when you get the night out that follows, the celebrations with your family and your fans, that makes you hungry for more and I’m sure Billy will be the exact same. He has a huge career ahead of him and it has already started so well. I have no doubt that he will stay humble, hungry and go on to achieve a lot more.”
Gilmour is almost certain to start against Luxembourg, offering him a great chance to show Clarke he can dictate play and break up the opposition at the base of the Scotland midfield.
