It will also be an opportunity to cast an eye over the two late additions to his squad with Bristol City striker Tommy Conway and New York Red Bulls forward Lewis Morgan drafted in following the injury withdrawals of Lyndon Dykes and Ben Doak.

Clarke will cut his squad from 28 to 26 in the immediate aftermatch of the match with the UEFA deadline for final squad submissions set at 11pm.

Scotland, who ended an seven-match winless run with a 2-0 victory over Gibraltar on Monday, will hope to give the Tartan Army a winning send-off against the side ranked 61st in the world before jetting off to their Euros base camp in Bavaria.

Finland missed out on the Euros after going down 4-1 to Wales in the play-off semi-finals in March. Since then, they have claimed a 2-1 win over Estonia before giving Portugal a run for their money before going down to a 4-2 scoreline earlier this week.

Scotland head into the contest defending an eight-match unbeaten record against Finland, althought they two nations have not met since 1998.

Scotland team news

Steve Clarke will make changes from the side which started against Gibraltar as he looks to spread the workload across his squad. Ryan Porteous, Ross McCrorie, Ryan Christie, John McGinn and Lawrence Shankland all completed 90 minutes on Monday and may drop to the bench. Kieran Tierney, Scott McKenna, Ryan Jack, Callum McGregor and Che Adams are all in contention to start after making substitute appearances against Gibraltar. Liam Cooper also came off the bench but went off again with an injury which renders him doubftul for the match. Goalkeeper Angus Gunn is likely to return between the sticks after Zander Clark was given the nod against Gibraltar. Anthony Ralston, Greg Taylor and Jack Hendry were unused subs so could into the reckoning for a start. Scott McTominay is set to feature off the bench against Finland after he and John Souttar trained on Thursday following injury while Clarke expects Stuart Armstrong to get approval to rejoin the team on Monday after a quad injury. Tommy Conway and Lewis Morgan could also be given a chance to impress after earning late call-ups to the squad.
