International Friendly Preview

It has been a fantastic period on the international stage for Scotland, and this fixture against the Netherlands will kickstart a busy period for the team. The Scots have secured a second straight appearance at the EUROs after impressing throughout the qualifying campaign. However, the nation will have hopes of improving on their showing from the previous edition of the tournament.

Scotland were one of the surprise packages in the qualifying campaign, pushing until the final day for a place at the top of the Group A standings. Although they ultimately settled for second spot in the standings after finishing four points behind Spain, Scotland were excellent throughout the campaign, winning five of their eight matches. Defensively, they were also solid, allowing just eight goals.

Despite some concerns about their overall form, with four defeats in ten matches over the last 12 months, the Dutch have been on a winning streak recently, with five victories in their last six matches. They have also won their last three matches, all with clean sheets.
