IN CONTENTION: Kieran Tierney has ‘a chance’ for England game
Scotland boss Steve Clarke believes Kieran Tierney has ‘a chance’ of facing England on Friday after coming through some light training.
The Arsenal defender joined his Scotland team-mates for training 24 hours after missing their Euro 2020 opener.
Tierney was filmed warming up alongside other players who did not start in Monday’s 2-0 Hampden defeat to the Czech Republic. A double from Patrik Schick made it a disappointing return to major tournament football for the Scots after a 23-year absence.
Scotland head coach Steve Clarke revealed on Monday that Tierney had picked up a “little niggle” in training but was hopeful the former Celtic player would return for Friday’s second group game against England at Wembley.
Speaking on Tuesday afternoon, Clarke said: “He did a little bit of light training and we will just see how he progresses. He’s got a chance.”
Scotland lie bottom of Group D after the first round of games and will need to get something from the game to realistically stand a chance of going through to the last 16.
