McTominay registered seven goals during Scotland's Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, becoming a hero of the Tartan Army as his country qualified for their second successive European Championship.

All of McTominay's goals came from open play and from a total of just eight shots on target, as he relished his more attacking role in the national side.

Alongside the ever-popular John McGinn, he carries the hopes of a nation as Steve Clarke plots his way through a group that contains a resurgent Germany under Julian Nagelsmann, an often under-estimated Hungary and perennial tournament attendees Switzerland.

His side are currently 5/1 to earn a point from the Euro 2024 curtain-raiser, while a price of 11/1 is available for a shock Scotland victory, which would arguably eclipse Greece's triumph over Portugal in the opening game of Euro 2004.

Germany have come a long way in a short space of time under the stewardship of Nagelsmann, and there is renewed optimism that they can lift the trophy for a fourth time.

The likes of Joshua Kimmich, Ilkay Gundogan and Toni Kroos are experienced operators in international football, while the emergence of Bayern Munich's Jamal Musiala and Bayer Leverkusen superstar Florian Wirtz suggest that the future is bright.

The main question mark is up front and whether the versatile Arsenal attacker Kai Havertz has the credentials to produce what the likes of Gerd Muller, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Miroslav Klose have previously done in major tournaments.

Havertz is 9/2 to score the first goal against Scotland, while Stuttgart striker Deniz Undav is available at the same price.
