England got off a bright start to their UEFA European Championship when they beat Croatia 1-0 on Sunday.
In doing so, the Three Lions picked up their first-ever opening day win in the European Championship.
The win also extended their winning run to seven games and ensured that they go into matchday two with the chance of guaranteeing their qualification to the next round.
Gareth Southgate’s side are the favourites to win this match and will hope to inflict a third defeat in four games against Scotland as they aim to end matchday two sitting on top of their group table.
Harry Maguire has returned to training for England but is not expected to play this tie as he continues to work his way to fitness. Meanwhile, Jack Grealish is a major doubt for this tie after missing out on training.

Scotland witnessed an embarrassing return to the international stage for the first time since 1998, and they were beaten by the Czech Republic in their opening game.
Despite creating numerous chances, the visitors were exposed at the back and are now facing the prospect of an early exit in their first European Championship appearance since 1996.
Steve Clarke’s men will need to win to at least ensure that they are in control of their own destinies going into their last group game against Croatia.
But their recent record of just one win in their last 11 matches vs England will be a worry (D2, L8).
