A Scotland win would create football history tonight - but who can hit the ball into the Croatia net?

Scotland are bidding to reach the knockout stages of a major football tournament for the first time.

Southampton midfielder Stuart Armstrong could play his part if he gets the nod to replace Billy Gilmour in the starting line-up.

Steve Clarke's side have yet to score at Euro 2020 and will need to change that to pick up the three points they crave at Hampden Stadium.

Armstrong is confident the goals can come tonight, and it could be his Saints' team-mate Che Adams who breaks the Scots' tournament drought.

“It would be a problem if we weren't creating any chances. We have had quite a few chances, some good opportunities," he said.

"It's just those fine margins that will take us to the next level, get us a goal, which we do need on Tuesday.

"I thought Che was excellent at Wembley, a really good performance, a hard performance against good quality defenders.

"It was really pleasing for me to see him perform so well, and I have obviously seen that every week at Southampton.

"To get on the pitch together would be nice, and link up. As long as the ball goes in the net, I'm not too bothered.”

Armstrong still has the buzz from seeing the Scotland fans reactions to Friday's impressive performance at Wembley in the 0-0 draw with England.

"It's great to see that our performance and point against England brought a lot of confidence and smiles to the faces of the country," he said.

"To build on that and give them something to cheer about (tonight) is our ambition and focus."
