Team news

Croatia will bring back Marcelo Brozovic to the starting line-up after he was dropped for the 1-1 draw with Czech Republic last weekend.

Ante Rebic will likely be benched while Bruno Petkovic could very likely find himself in the starting XI up top.

Scotland will be without Billy Gilmour after he tested positive for Covid following the drab 0-0 draw with England last weekend.

Kieran Tierney is fit and ready to play again, having completed 90 splendid minutes against England at Wembley.

    IVAN: WE'LL BE OK

    Croatia have been poor so far and have just one point from their two games, the same as Scotland.

    But Perisic insists they are ready to finally make their mark.

    He said: "We haven't been the real ones in our first two matches. We have to improve and be way better.

    "It's not going to be easy, but in the past, whenever we've had to, we were the real team. I feel it's going to be completely all right for Croatia.

    "Will we need to be patient? We'll see.

    "The game lasts for 90 minutes and for us it's only important to win and move on. We can hardly wait for the match to start."

    PERI-SCOPE

    Ivan Perisic insists Scotland playing at Hampden makes up for the loss of Billy Gilmour, writes ROBERT THOMSON.

    Scots boss Steve Clarke has been left gutted after the 20-year-old Chelsea midfielder was ruled out by Covid.

    Croatia are furious at the set-up of the Euros, which has meant them playing in front of partisan crowds with no backing of their own.

    And Inter Milan ace Perisic reckons Gilmour's absence won't be a huge factor tonight.

    He said: "It's not easy for any of the teams when they lose one of their important players. But Scotland, I'm sure, have solutions for that.

    "They also play in front of their fans in their own stadium, so that's an additional factor for them.

    "Some countries play at home, some can't. We cannot have our fans in the stadiums where we are playing as guests. So we have to try to cope.

    "We know we have to concentrate on our team and our game and do all we can to try to win."

    DO IT FOR BILLY

    Steve Clarke has urged his Scotland stars to keep Billy Gilmour's Euros dream alive.

    The Chelsea midfielder is out of tonight's clash with Croatia after testing positive for Covid-19.

    A win for Clarke's team will clinch a historic last-16 spot.

    Gilmour was given the bombshell news yesterday morning and must now self-isolate for ten days — meaning that his tournament is over unless SCOTLAND reach the quarter-finals.

    Clarke said: "What we have to do is make sure Billy's good performance against England doesn't go to waste.

    "The players don't need added motivation, but this is a very tight-knit group.

    "They know if we can progress far enough into the tournament then they can welcome Billy back into the squad. That would be fantastic.

    "The first step to doing that is to make sure we go out against Croatia and play as well as we can.

    "We have to find our top performance level and hope it's enough to get us the three points against a team that was in the last World Cup final.

    "It's a chance for someone else to come into the team and make themselves a national hero."
