Stuart Armstrong admits the lingering “pain” of Scotland’s World Cup play-off defeat by Ukraine will be a source of motivation when the two sides meet again in the Nations League on Wednesday.
Scotland were eminently beaten 3-1 at Hampden in early June when their hopes of making it to Qatar were ruthlessly dashed by their visitors.
Less than four months later, they meet again in a Nations League game in Glasgow.
“I think there’s definitely a level of injury from last time out,” said Southampton midfielder Armstrong. “We knew what was at stake in this game.
Here’s everything you need to know.
When is it?
The game will kick off at 19:45 BST on Wednesday 21st September.
How can I watch?
The game can be viewed on ITV4 and the ITV Hub. The Premier Sports streaming service is also broadcasting the game.
Scotland XI: Gordon; Patterson, Hendry, McKenna, Tierney; McTominay, McGregor, McGinn; Christie, Adams, Armstrong
Ukraine XI: trubin; Karavaev, Bondar, Matviyenko, Mykhailichenko; Stepanenko; Yarmolenko, Pikhalyonok, Malinovsky, Mudryk; Dovbyk
Scotland – 29/20

It will be a rematch mission for Scotland after losing the World Cup play-offs earlier this year, but Ukraine should have enough to rise to the challenge. Scotland 1-2 Ukraine.
