Trio make EURO 2024 provisional Scotland squad

22 May 2024

Zander Clark, Craig Gordon and Lawrence Shankland have been named in Scotland’s EURO 2024 provisional squad.


The Hearts trio have been called up to the national team ahead of their friendly double-header against Gibraltar and Finland next month.


From there, manager Steve Clarke will make a final decision on who makes his 26-man squad for the European Championship finals in Germany, which kick off on June 14th.


Zander has enjoyed a fantastic campaign for the Jambos regularly pulling off big saves – including penalty stops against Hibs and Celtic – on the way to recording 15 clean sheets, the second highest amount in the Premiership.


Against all the odds, Craig returned from a double-leg break to once again pull on a Hearts jersey this season. He featured seven times between the sticks, playing a big part in the Jam Tarts’ run to the Scottish Cup semi final.


Lawrence swept the board with awards after his 31 goals in maroon fired the Jambos to two Hampden appearances and third place in the league, and with it, guaranteed group stage European football. PFA Scotland Player of the Year, Scottish Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year, cinch Premiership Player of the Year and the SPFL Golden Boot were just some of the accolades the skipper picked up after another record-breaking year.


Scotland face Gibraltar away from home on June 3rd before hosting Finland four days later. They then open EURO 2024 on June 14th when they take on hosts Germany in Munich.
