Missing Players and team news:

Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk recently confirmed that he will be out for the European Championship and the preceding friendlies, having missed the majority of the Premier League campaign through a ligament injury. In his absence, Matthijs de Ligt and Stefan de Vrij should partner up at the heart of the defence, while Manchester City centre-back Nathan Ake will also push for a starting spot. The key man in their attack will be Memphis Depay, who starred for Lyon in Ligue 1 this season with 20 goals and 12 assists in 37 league games. Frenkie De Jong and Georginio Wijnaldum recently joined up with the rest of the Netherlands squad, and they should partner up in midfield on Wednesday. Meanwhile, goalkeeper Jasper Cillesen is yet to arrive at the camp, having recently tested positive for COVID-19. Forward Che Adams recently pledged his allegiance to the Scottish national team, and he will look to secure his place in the starting XI for the upcoming tournament. He could be joined in attack by Lyndon Dykes, given the injuries to Ryan Fraser and Oli McBurnie. Scotland possess an impressive left-hand side, with Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney expected to operate on the left of a back three while Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson will take on attacking and defensive responsibilities from a wing-back role. With Robertson alongside the likes of John McGinn and Scott McTominay, they have a strong line across the middle, shielding the back three of Tierney, Grant Hanley and Leeds United centre-back Liam Cooper.
