Scotland vs Israel – LIVE updates

Scotland boss Steve Clarke is acutely aware of the balancing act that comes with managing his country.

Saluted after Serbia, condemned after the Czechs came up trumps in the Euro 2020 opener - it's never easy when five million people are second guessing you.

But the bravery on display in the win against Austria sets him and his players up perfectly for a monumental clash with Israel.

Our old pals are no mugs but there's real hope that 50,000 diehards will help roar the players over the line and set up a brilliant chance of securing a playoff slot to reach the World Cup.

The job won't be secured but a win tonight would put Scotland in command with the Faroe Islands and Moldova up next before we take on Denmark in the final match of Group F.

Clarke has a team packed with talent like Andy Robertson, Billy Gilmour and Kieran Tierney but the greatest strength is the collective spirit that was on display in Vienna.

Rangers' rampaging right-back Nathan Patterson returns at the expense of Stephen O'Donnell as Clarke trusts the 19-year-old to deliver
