Southampton pair Stuart Armstrong and Che Adams also make the cut, the latter having only declared for Scotland ahead of the March international break, while Newcastle’s Ryan Fraser is picked despite club boss Steve Bruce warning it would be a “gamble” to take him, given has has not featured since March because of a groin injury.

QPR striker Lyndon Dykes and Derby goalkeeper David Marshall – whose crucial playoff penalty shootout save booked Scotland’s place at the tournament – are also included.
