Clarke was never going to be too left field. Ryan Jack is perhaps fortunate to make it.

Ross McCrorie a good decision as he’s been playing right side for Bristol City and is a consistent performer.

Ben Doak’s inclusion is a bonus a wild card, something different. Max Johnston is unlucky not to make it.

McCrorie as an effective wildcard is brilliant. I really like him as a player, he’s super versatile and a top athlete. He fits the Clarke mould really well.

Doak is another one I didn’t expect to be included just because of his injuries this season; I thought it would come too soon.

Whether he’ll be there when it’s cut to 26 players I’m not sure. He could be the one to get the nation excited.

It’s brilliant to see James Forrest in. I think it was expected, but there was a risk he could miss out because of Clarke’s loyalty to some players.

I’m surprised at Jack. I know he’s been fit and available but I think he’s probably lucky to be included and it’s down to the loyalty the manager shows.

When it comes to the big stage you need quality, squad depth and good characters. When you look at the squad it ticks the majority of those boxes.

I wouldn’t have minded seeing a few more attacking players.

Doak is a surprise, a wildcard. But he’s also someone we were talking about seven or eight months ago that if he was fit he is one who could make it given the quality he’s got in the attacking area.
