Netherlands vs Scotland: TV channel, live stream, kick-off time, team news for TONIGHT'S Euro 2020 warm-up game

SCOTLAND are stepping up their preparations for a first international tournament in 23 years with a big friendly against Holland.

Steve Clarke's men brilliantly overcame Serbia in November to reach the Euros for the first time in a generation.

And they now take on a Dutch side who comfortably qualified for Euro 2020 two years ago but are now under new management.

Frank de Boer has replaced Ronald Koeman after the former Everton boss joined Barcelona last summer.

Scotland take on England, Croatia and Czech Republic in Euro 2020 while Holland face Austria, Ukraine and North Macedonia.

Team news

The big news from the Holland camp is that the Dutch will be without Virgil van Dijk, who pulled out of the squad to focus on getting fit for Liverpool next season.

Ryan Jack and Kenny McLean would have been likely to start in midfield for Scotland but have both missed out on their Euro 2020 squad through injury.

As a result, Chelsea's Billy Gilmour and Celtic's David Turnbull could be due for a runout.

    And it's a big night for one Celtic youngster!

    Hello and welcome along to SunSport’s live coverage from tonight’s friendly between The Netherlands and Scotland in Portugal.

    The game is the first in Steve Clarke’s pre-tournament friendlies – yes pre-tournament friendlies – as Scotland gear up for the start of Euro 2020 this month.

    The squad have had a week to prepare in Spain as the 26 players get accustomed to life for the next (hopefully) six weeks.

    And part of those preparations will be on show tonight as they take on the Dutch.

    But Clarke’s plans have been rocked in the past 24 hours with news that John Fleck tested positive for Covid-19.

    Then SunSport brought you the news that SIX players had been deemed ‘in his vicinity’ and would also therefore be left in Spain and not board the flight to Faro for tonight’s game.

    Stars David Marshall, John McGinn, Che Adams, Stephen O’Donnell, Grant Hanley and Nathan Patterson will miss the clash.

    The bombshell decision was taken after Scotland medics did a risk assessment on the back of Fleck’s diagnosis.

    None of the six players have tested positive for Covid -19 and aren’t considered definite close contacts.

    But one man’s disappoint is another man’s opportunity, with a few of the squad now set for some unexpected game time as they look to stake a claim.

    We will get our first look at what Clarke has up his sleeve for the tournament.

    It all gets underway at 7:45pm, with team news on the way.
