Scotland boss Steve Clarke will make changes for Sunday’s Nations League clash with Slovakia, but their Euro 2020 celebrations will have no bearing on his selection. The squad enjoyed their achievement together after beating Serbia on penalties in Thursday’s play-off.
When asked if he would make more changes than normal, Clarke said: “The short answer is yes. The long answer probably takes in the fact the celebrations wouldn’t have anything to do with it. It was a good celebration but it wasn’t crazy, it wasn’t silly and over the top.
Slovakia were also play-off winners, beating Northern Ireland 2-1 in extra-time, and midfielder Marek Hamsik is set to make his 125th international appearance.
Slovakia sacked previous manager Pavel Hapal days after losing 1-0 at Hampden and 3-2 against Israel last month, despite reaching the Euro 2020 play-off finals earlier in October.
His replacement, Stefan Tarkovic, recalled former Rangers midfielder Vladimir Weiss, who had fallen out with Hapal. But the Slovan Bratislava player did not feature in Belfast and has left the squad following an agreement with his club.
Veteran defender Tomas Hubocan came out of international retirement to play against Northern Ireland but he missed training on Saturday because of a knock.
Scotland have won their last two international encounters with Slovakia by the same 1-0 scoreline, although both games were at home – a World cup qualifier in October 2017 and a UEFA Nations League match last month.
Slovakia won their only previous home meeting with Scotland – a 3-0 victory in a World Cup qualifier in October 2016.
