Obviously a mere soccer game pales into insignificance when set against the backdrop of war, but equally, this is no meaningless kickabout. Instead, it’s a FIFA World Cup 2022 playoff, that will decide which of these two sides has a chance to qualify for the finals in Qatar later this year.

What’s more, the Ukrainian team will all be playing for the millions back home who have endured horrendous hardships over the past three months. A win here won’t remotely make up for all they’ve been through, but it might provide a rare moment of joy.

As the legendary striker and former national coach Andriy Shevchenko told BBC Sport, “We need to play for the fans, for the whole of Ukraine, for those at home, for those defending the country and for those who left the country.”

That puts the Scots in rather a tricky position; people around the world will be rooting for Ukraine, so victory would have a bittersweet taste. But from a purely sporting point of view, Scotland will be desperate to reach their first finals since 1998. Ukraine have at least been there more recently, in 2006, but they’ve also missed out at this stage several times since. Make no mistake: this game matters.

The winner of this match will face Wales at the weekend, with the winner of that game confirming their place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Find out which one has a chance by watching the Scotland vs Ukraine live stream.

Scotland vs Ukraine live stream: Team news

Ukraine’s players have, for obvious reasons, not had the easiest preparations for this FIFA World Cup 2022 playoff semi-final.

With the domestic league suspended since Russia invaded, half of the squad have instead had to keep up their fitness as best they can through a training camp in Slovenia and friendly matches against club sides in Germany, Italy and Croatia.

The other half of the squad have been spread around Europe’s top clubs, with the likes of Oleksandr Zinchenko, Roman Yaremchuk, Andriy Yarmolenko and Vitaliy Mykolenko all featuring today.

Scotland, meanwhile, will be without the injured Kieran Tierney, Ryan Jack and Nathan Patterson. Boss Steve Clarke will be hoping that Liverpool’s Andy Robertson — Scotland’s captain — has recovered from his Champions League final exertions (and disappointment).

Here’s how they line up:

Scotland: Gordon, McTominay, Hanley, Cooper; Hickey, Gilmour, McGregor, Robertson; McGinn; Adams, Dykes.

Ukraine: Bushchan, Karavayev, Zabarnyi, Matviyenko, Mykolenko, Stepanenko, Yarmolenko, Malinovsky, Zinchenko, Tsygankov, Yaremchuk.
