Scotland will be heading to Serbia on Thursday night, with a place at EURO 2020 up for grabs. The Scots will be hoping to qualify for a major tournament for the first time since 1998.
Serbia vs Scotland team news
Serbia have never qualified for a European Championships, and they’ll be looking to make history in Belgrade.
It’s a star-studded team that features a number of household names, including Ajax star Dusan Tadic, Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic, and Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Former Manchester City left-back Aleksandar Kolarov is a doubt for the clash, however.
He picked up a minor back injury, but could be risked by the Serbs in a bid to finally get over the line.
Scotland boss Steve Clark has a relatively full-strength squad to choose from.
But he’ll be without Newcastle United winger Ryan Fraser, as well as Norwich City’s Grant Hanley.
Andrew Robertson, John McGinn and Scott McTominay are all fit and ready for action.
Clark will also be delighted by Stuart Armstrong’s form for Southampton, coming right at the best time.

What has been said?
Scotland boss Clarke said: “It is really difficult to say, but this is just another game. You can only win if you do the basics right, everything that’s worked for us recently.
“If we do, then we have a great chance and that’s all we can focus on.”
Serbia head coach Ljubisa Tumbakovic: “Scotland is one of the most compact teams in Europe at the moment and they play with great character.
“I am sure they will try to prove that in Belgrade. But this is our pitch.”
