Can Clarke Turn Around Scotland? Empty Can Clarke Turn Around Scotland?

Kilmarnock boss Steve Clarke has been named the new Scotland boss but can he turn it around for the national squad as he has done for Kilmarnock?

Scotland have not made a major tournament finals since France 1998 which is over twenty years. They currently sit second bottom of their Euro 2020 qualifying group after two games, so all is not lost but they are not off to a flyer. With Belgium and Russia both likely favourites in the group to finish as the top two his task looks hard.

In the latest FIFA rankings Scotland have now dropped to 44th down 4 places and are the lowest placed of the four home nations. 

Clarke will certainly have an uphill task but logic does say that he should have a bigger pool of players to select for Scotland than Kilmarnock and in theory they should be better players. He just needs to get the Killie spirit and them to gel.

Time will tell but I do believe Scotland will struggle to qualify for Euro2020 and the true test for him will be getting them to the 2022 World Cup.

Sorry but Scotland just aren't good enough and with Belgium and Russia in their group it is a hard task without the fact that they just don't have the quality of players.
