As regards squad news, Callum Peterson has been summoned in as a replacement for the injured full back Alan Hutton. Strikers Steven Naismith and Steven Fletcher and Celtic forward Leigh Griffiths will be contesting for starting position up front, whilst the likes of Matt Ritchie, Robert Snodgrass, James Morrison, and Ikechi Anya are all in the squad.
Meanwhile, Lithuania started their qualifying campaign with an entertaining match with Slovenia. They were leading 2–0 until the 75th minute and were set to disappoint one of the favourites in the group. But Slovenia strike late in the injury time to deny what would have been a crucial win for the Lithuanian National team.
