Scottish FA confirm friendly matches against Czech Republic & Denmark


The Scottish FA have announced that Scotland will play two international friendlies in March against Czech Republic and Denmark as part of their preparations for the 2018 World Cup qualification campaign.

Strachan’s side will travel to Prague on 24th March to face the Czechs before taking on Denmark five days later at Hampden Park.

It has been disclosed that Strachan will select a different squad for each game.

Speaking to the official Scottih FA website, Strachan said: “It’s important that we use these two matches effectively and give opportunities to those who may not have had as many as they would have liked in the previous campaign. It also allows us the flexibility to take a look at some players who are emerging.

“We would all rather be using these matches to prepare for the Euros this summer but we need to get over that disappointment collectively – coaches, players and supporters – and the best way to do that is to get together again and start planning for the World Cup qualifiers.”
