McLeish to keep Scotland continuity against Israel
The national team boss is unlikely to make many changes for the Nations League clash.
Scotland manager Alex McLeish has said that he is unlikely to make many changes to his team for the Nations League match against Israel on Thursday.
The national team began their campaign with a 2-0 win over Albania at Hampden and McLeish is keen to have a "rhythm and continuity". That means there will be a familiar look to the side that faces Israel and to the way they play.
"It would be hard to overlook players that gave such a good performance," he said.
"We have a pattern emerging in terms of the team and the personnel.
"But it's also prudent to be able to adjust to different systems and we know we have that flexibility.
"It's the old adage when they say you shouldn't change a winning team. We don't want to keep making too many changes. We'd like to get a bit of rhythm and continuity."
McLeish said that the players looked to be showing the right attitude in training and hoped that would continue in what is likely to be a testing match against an Israeli side looking to bounce back from defeat in their first Nations League match.
"The squad have trained really well, it is a good group," he added.
"I know these are cheap words sometimes because I have said that before and then you don't produce the performance level.
"What they have shown in training and the camaraderie in the dressing room, I would like to see all that come to the fore. We look for high marks for each individual but also a great team performance."
