Scotland squad announcement LIVE as Steve Clarke makes his first choices of 2020

As football eases its way back into normality the return of the Scotland squad announcement is sure to bring back some fiery debates we haven’t had all year.

Arguing over why a particular player has been snubbed by manager Steve Clarke while so-and-so gets a free ride is a football staple and we’ve been deprived of it for too long thanks to coronavirus.

While September’s Nations League games against Israel and the Czech Republic will be behind closed doors, the players will feel their ears burning already amid the chatter a squad announcement brings.

And the most burning question of all right now is whether striker Lyndon Dykes will be pulling on the dark blue of Scotland or the gold of Australia for the rest of his career.

The 24-year-old just tied up his big move from Livingston to QPR last week and now he’s got another big call to make because participation in either of next month’s matches will decide his international future – if he’s included in Clarke’s squad.

Arsenal star Kieran Tierney is also set to return to the squad.
