More subs in the offing:

51' 

McGregor...lovely ball out to Robertson, missed by Dumfries... but frustration for the Scots as Robertson is offside.

49' 

We're again at a stage where neither side can really keep control of the ball with any real quality; it's all very bitty in midfield with no true skill about the passing moves.

48' 

Christie fouls Dumfries.

48' 

Positive play down the left from Armstrong, and it's a poor cross, straight into the gloves of Krul.

46'

Tierney from range! Krul scrambling, but wide.

9' 

Beautiful sweeping pass from de Vrij, switching play to Wijndal, but his cross is cleared well by Cooper.

7' 

Nice early possession here for the Dutch; de Jong dropping deep into a left quarter-back position to get on the ball and drivbble, with Depay floating. Dumfries and Wijndal are getting high and wide from wing-back, as the former crashes a shot into the side netting.

5' 

Handball given against Memphis Depay as he juggles the ball on the edge of the Scotland box.

4' 

de Ligt is fouled by Christie just inside the attacking half.

10 minutes.

15 minutes to kick off.

19:27 

Scotland: Gordon, Turnbull, Cooper. Hendry, Tierney, Christie, McGregor, Robertson, Armstrong, Dykes, Forrest.

19:26 

Holland: Krul, Timber, de Vrif, de Ligt, Dumfries, de Roon, Wijnaldum, de Jong, Wijndal, Depay, Weghorst.

19:26 

For those who missed the team lineups...

19:25 

20 minutes to kick off.

19:21 

We assume that Liam Cooper will be the man to deal with the target man Weghorst, and it'll be one of Hendry or Turnbull that has to follow the drifting runs of Memphis Depay in the half spaces.

19:19 

We're looking forward to seeing how the Scotland energy in the middle of the park is matched by the Dutch: it seems no surprise that Wijnaldum and de Roon have been selected to deal with the legs of Christie, McGregor and Armstrong, and it'll be interesting to see how the Netherlands react to James Forrest's pace peeling off to the right flank from his striking berth alongside Dykes.

19:15 

Half an hour to go.

19:08 
18:58 

For the Scots, Craig Gordon lines up in goal with David Marshall out with Covid, and it seems as though Kieran Tierney will be moved across to right wing-back to accomodate for Stephen O'Donnell's absence. In the back three, Liam Cooper returns, joined by Jack Hendry and David Turnbull, with Scott McTominay benched. In midfield, Callum McGregor will provide the energy alongside Ryan Christie, with James Forrest looking to utilise his pace down the right, and Andy Robertson captains the side on the left. Lyndon Dykes completes the line-up, with Stuart Armstrong tucked just behind the QPR striker.

18:54 

For the Dutch, it's a 3-5-2 system that has suited them well in recent years. Denzel Dumfries and Owen Wijndal will provide the width at wing-back, with workhorses Georginio Wijnaldum and Maarten de Roon partnering Frenkie de Jong in the engine room. It's big man, small man up top, with Memphis Depay up there with Wolfsburg's Wout Weghorst. Justin Timber makes his debut for the Oranje tonight, alongside experienced head Stefan de Vrij, with starlet Matthijis de Ligt completing the trio, ahead of Norwich's Tim Krul.

18:54 

Let's dissect these lineups then, shall we?
