main events

17 minutes: Cross Tierney deep from the left. Armstrong rallies to the other side and retreats to Patterson, who swings in the middle. McGinn knocks vertically wide to the left. More decent football from the hosts.

16 minutes: Nothing comes from the resulting corner, but this is a promising playing period Scotland.

15 minutes: McTominay and Armstrong combine crisply down the middle, the latter slipping a pass down Patterson’s right inner channel. The linebacker hesitates before he shoots, and Modric, tracking back, runs out for a corner. Had Patterson been more thoughtful there, he would surely have tested Tropin from 12 yards or so.

13 minutes: Armstrong swings the ball from the right. Adams stands strong in a wide header pass to the left for Christie, who swings a dramatic low back through Ukraine can. Adams can’t lunge at the cross from six yards. Had he made any kind of contact, that was definitely the opening goal. Decent movement and a beautiful cross.

11 minutes: Adams slips down the left, netting a Tierney pass along the touchline. Adams drops a skating shoulder behind Bondar and enters the box, but his weak side foot is easy for Tropin. He should have done a better job. The flag was raised for offside, but then again, had the ball ended up in the net, the VAR could have overturned a boundary decision.

10 minutes: Ukraine They control possession now. Lots of patients pass through the middle of the park. In the end, Mykhaylichenko lashes one lower left. There is no one in yellow in the box.

8 minutes: Ukraine You have two players holding one off suspension: Mykola Matvienko and captain Andrey Yarmolenko. They will miss their trip to Armenia on Saturday.

6 minutes: Christy and McCain are cruising with a goal down the left. The latter eventually sends a weak cross to the chest, easy meat for Trubin in Ukraine Goal. Both sides are looking for this well.

5 minutes: More room for Modric below Ukraine the left. He can’t find anyone in the middle, but the pinballs have been around the Scottish chest for a while. It might be a long night for Patterson, Armstrong and McTominay on this wing.

4 minutes: Scotland respond well. Patterson releases the right inner canal. McGinn clicks and almost sends Adams into space. Not quite, but this worried the fans, because of the confident start for Ukraine, and back again.

3 minutes: Long pass sends Dovbyk free down the middle. The flag eventually went up for the hack, but if it had caused the network to be hacked, VAR might have had something to say about that decision. It looked very close. Quick start Ukraine.

2 minutes: The dangerous Mudryk almost clearly broke down the left. He was forced to turn, in time, by McTominay, but the already young winger signaled his intentions.

Scotland kick-off. four Scotland Players are one reservation away from commentary, by the way. If Scott McTominay, Callum McGregor, Che Adams or Ryan Christie pick up the yellow, they will miss the game against the Republic of Ireland on Saturday.

Before kick-off, a minute of applause in memory of Queen Elizabeth II. A warm applause, but also a lot of booing simmering under it all. Everyone is on their own, no one has any obligation. Changing the silence is probably the best idea SFA has had in a while, mind.

The difference is out! Great atmosphere in Hampden. Scotland They are dressed in dark blue, while Ukraine is in first choice in yellow. As they take to the field, every Ukrainian wears their national flag. Wonderful renditions of both hymns. The flower of Scotland is tied to sentiment, of course, but it has also been respected and honoured. The glory and freedom of Ukraine has not yet perished. We’ll be leaving in a minute.

Steve Clark talks to Premier Sports. “It’s always nice to play here, especially when you have a full house. We’ve had some great nights here. It’s obviously a disappointing event in the summer, but tonight is all about correcting that. We have to pay attention to the fact that we had a good campaign in the World Cup.” “The disappointment was not to finish the qualifiers and get to the World Cup. What we want to do now is go back to what we were good at before: an active team that creates chances and gets the fans excited. Both teams are a little different from the summer, but I’m sure it will be a match Good. We’ll have to be much better to get a result.”

Scotland coach Steve Clark made three changes to the starting lineup that was named to the 4-1 win in Armenia back in June. Kieran Tierney, Scott McKenna, and Ryan Christie attended; They have replaced Grant Hanley, Greg Taylor and Billy Gilmore.

There is no Oleksandr Zinchenko for him Ukraine. Arsenal and the former Manchester City companion man have a calf problem. Mikhailo Modric, who scored a goal for Shakhtar Donetsk against Celtic in the Champions League last week, will be patrolling the left flank.
