Tierney gets Scotland selection for Euro 2024

Kieran Tierney has been confirmed in Scotland’s final squad for Euro 2024.

The left-back, who spent last season on loan at Real Sociedad, will be part of the Tartan Army heading to Germany, where they will face the hosts, Switzerland and Hungary as they attempt to progress from the group stages for the first time in a major championship.

The Scots made it through to a second consecutive European Championships after winning their first five qualifying games, but suffered a run of seven matches without a win before a 2-0 success against Gibraltar on Monday. Kieran came on in that game in place of captain Andy Robertson. He then won his 45th cap for his country in Friday's 2-2 draw against Finland at Hampden Park.

Kieran has been a mainstay of the Scotland side since debuting in 2016, and played in two of their matches at Euro 2020. His importance to the side was highlighted by the fact he started all five of their Euro 2024 qualifying wins, while he missed the subsequent three matches that failed to deliver another victory.

He is likely to play at centre-back at the finals, in a strong Scotland side that also contains Aston Villa’s John McGinn and Scott McTominay of Manchester United, while Steve Clarke has gone with 17 players who were also part of the Euro 2020 travelling party.

After coming up against Kai Havertz’s Germany on the first day of the action, Scotland will then take on Switzerland on Wednesday, June 19 before wrapping up the group stage with their clash against Hungary four days later.
