Alex McLeish has said that he intends to bring "a bit of bravado back" to the Scotland national side as he targets a place in the Euro 2020 finals.
The 59-year-old was appointed as Gordon Strachan's successor last month for a second spell in the Hampden Park hotseat, tasked with picking his players up following another disappointing qualifying campaign last time out.
A new era for Scottish football begins on Friday when Costa Rica travel to Glasgow for a friendly, with McLeish hoping for a confident and bold display from his players to get supporters excited once more.
"We want to qualify for the Euros. That is our number one goal and we will never have that out of our minds," he told reporters. "It is not something to worry about, it is something face head-on and love it.
"We want to get a bit of bravado back into people's mentality and believe that we can compete with the best teams in Europe, if not the world."
