Scotland qualify for Euro 2024 after Spain beat Norway

Scotland will look to get back to winning ways when they travel to face France in a friendly on Tuesday.

Despite their controversial 2-0 defeat against Spain on Thursday, Steve Clarke’s side later had their place in next year’s Euros confirmed when Spain beat Norway on Sunday evening. Clarke has now led the Tartan Army to consecutive European Championships.

France, meanwhile, also punched their ticket to next summer’s tournament in Germany with their 2-1 victory over Netherlands in midweek. Didier Deschamps’s side have a perfect record in qualifying but did lose their last friendly against Germany in September.
