Notable players

Captain Andy Robertson is among the most experienced footballers in Scotland. He’s played for the nation three times in Euro qualifiers (2014-15, ’19-20, ’23-24) and in 41 total international matches between Euros and the World Cup. Robertson is widely considered one of the very best at his position, cementing left-back for Scotland.

John McGinn won’t captain the Scottish national team, but he assumes that duty with Aston Villa. He’s played in 33 international matches, adding even more experience to the starting 11. During 2019-20 Euro qualifying, McGinn netted seven goals and added two more assists. In these past qualifying matches, he scored three goals in eight matches. Expect McGinn to lead Scotland in scoring. Don’t be afraid to target some goal props with McGinn at top soccer betting sites.
