This is it. This is the day when Scotland can make history by reaching the knockouts of a major competition for the first time ever.

A win against Hungary would just about guarantee our place in the last 16 as one of the four best third-placed teams to go through. Even a draw could potentially be enough to get us out of the group, albeit we'd have to rely on other results to go our way. And a defeat? Well, Steve Clarke's men would be on a flight home tomorrow by finishing bottom of Group A.

Let's not think about that though as the Scots seek to go a step further in the competition and keep the Tartan Army party alive in Germany. After a 5-1 mauling to Germany in last week's Euro opener, Scotland bounced back with a much-improved display to earn a deserved point against Switzerland on Wednesday.

Another performance like that could be enough to get the job done tonight, but we'll have to do it without the injured Kieran Tierney and suspended Ryan Porteous. That's forced Clarke to tweak his backline and you can check out the full team news below:

Scotland XI: Gunn; Ralston, Robertson, Hanley, Hendry, McKenna; McTominay, McGinn, McGregor, Gilmour; Adams.

Subs: Kelly, Clark, Christie, Shankland, Cooper, Armstrong, Morgan, Conway, Jack, McCrorie, McLean, Taylor, Forrest.

Hungary XI: Gulácsi, Orbán, Dárdai, Botka, Bolla, Styles, Schäfer, Kerkez, Szoboszlai, Sallai, B. Varga.

Subs: Dibusz, Szappanos, Lang, Balogh, A. Szalai, Fiola, Négo, Á. Nagy, Ádám, Kleinheisler, Gazdag, Zs. Nagy, Csoboth, Horváth, Kata.
