James McArthur comes into the Scotland team to face Belgium in place of the injured Scott Brown.

Celtic midfielder Scott Brown has not been included in the Scotland starting lineup for this evening's World Cup qualifier away in Belgium.

Brown has been suffering from a persistent hip injury in recent months and has been replaced by Wigan Athletic's James McArthur.

Darren Fletcher will continue in the midfield and has retained the captain's armband, while Steven Fletcher will feature as a lone striker.

Meanwhile, Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard has only been handed a place on Belgium's bench.

Belgium: Courtois; Alderweireld, Vermaelen, Kompany, Vertonghen; Witsel, Chadli, Mertens, De Bruyne; Dembele, Benteke

Scotland: McGregor; Hutton, Berra, Caldwell, Fox; McArthur, D Fletcher, Commons, Maloney, Morrison; S Fletcher
