Team News: Mario Gotze to start as false nine for Germany

Mario Gotze will lead Germany's attack in this evening's Euro 2016 qualifier against Scotland.

Mario Gotze will seemingly start as a false nine for Germany this evening in their Euro 2016 qualifier against Scotland.

The Bayern Munich attacker, who scored in the World Cup final against Argentina earlier this summer, is expected to start as the most advanced of an attack that also includes club teammate Thomas Muller and Borussia Dortmund's Marco Reus.

In defence, there are starts for Sebastian Rudy and Erik Durm in the full-back positions.

For Scotland, Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher will captain the team from midfield, while Everton's Steven Naismith is also in the XI.

There is also a place for Watford's Ikechi Anya in what is a largely defensive Scotland lineup.

Teams

Germany: Neuer; Rudy, Boateng, Howedes, Durm; Kramer, Kroos; Muller, Reus, Schurrle; Götze

Scotland: Marshall; Hutton, Whittaker, Hanley, Martin; Morrison, Fletcher, Mulgrew, Bannan, Anya; Naismith
