I'm not sure Scotland are going to have any players left for this game. Almost every defensive option is out injured, and Ryan Porteous could have to make his debut tomorrow.

Meanwhile Adams and Dykes are both I'll, leaving not many attacking options left.

Quite concerning in all.

Huge game for Porteous to come in for and, to a lesser extent, Ryan Jack to be thrown back in.

Can't afford to think about only needing a draw and sitting back in this game. This team has far more quality in midfield going forward than in the defence.

Ukraine benefitting from having Zabarnyi and Mykolenko back in their defence. Tymchyk has also started in place of the erratic Karavayev. Despite the injuries, Petrakov the manager has played a pretty good lineup.

What the hell...

Scotland have a claim for a penalty overturned correctly by VAR. The ball initially went out for the corner. But Ukraine get the dropball xD. How does that work!?

Well it's 0-0 at half-time. Ukraine need to win to top the group, they've had their chances, but Yarmolenko in particular was really guilty of missing a very big chance. Petrakov might be tempted to bring on attacking options Yaremchuk, Tsygankov or even Zubkov if it remains 0-0 for much longer in the 2nd half.

For Scotland, a win or a draw will do. They've been pretty organised for the most part and had that one really good chance through Che Adams whose deflected shot early on was saved by Lunin. But it will be interesting to see how they play in the 2nd half, will they be more attacking and take the game more to Ukraine or will they look to play it more safe. Either way, this is a big match for both sides as they both desperately want to win this group.

Tsygankov and Yaremchuk come on for Mudryk and Dovbyk for Ukraine. Tsygankov is always a great player to bring on, but not sure why the manager has brought off Mudryk, who has been one of the best players on the pitch once again.

Well it's all over, Scotland get the result they needed to win the group. They defended very well and were well organised. They battled very hard and have been rewarded with finishing 1st in the group after drawing 0-0 with Ukraine here in Poland. Ukraine had their chances, but a mixture of great saves by Gordon and wayward finishing has cost them 1st place. Ireland finish 3rd in the group after beating Armenia 3-2 in Dublin.
