Euro Fantasy Football: Expert details the 3 Scotland players you should consider for your squad

Scotland

Scottish national team have been placed in a group with England the Czech Republic and Croatia.

On the surface one might think that progression will be difficult and there is a solid amount of truth in that assumption, However, this is by far one of the best Scottish side’s of the modern era including plenty of top level Premier League talent.

The Czech Republic are likely to be considered the least likely to win many games and with Croatia not the side that reached the World Cup final in 2018, there is all the possibility for a shock in the group.

But who should you be considering selecting for your Euro Fantasy squad?

“Scotland’s main man, 10 goals in 32 internationals from midfield is the reason why he will be a popular addition to many fantasy squads for this summer. The Aston Villa man has become a key man with his energetic and powerful displays, and with his added goal threat he will be a major player for the tartan army.”

Pulling the strings from the midfield. Some additional points from midfield and a cheaper option might be worth the punt on McGinn.

Kieran Tierney

“Massive player for Scotland, capable of providing assists and will also be depended on in defence. With Scotland being the underdog, his defensive prowess and stamina will see him play every game and will fight to the death.”

Do not let the fact that Tierney’s positioning is more reserved for Scotland. His influence on the attack is still key to their play.

Andy Robertson

“Premier League & Champions League winner. Key man again in defence, and with his superb delivery from the left he will be looking to add to his already burgeoning number of assists. Plays every game for Scotland, and will be hoping to keep out the big names he’ll be facing.”

The risk of losing some clean sheet points might be worth taking a risk should Robertson pop up with some key assists.
