On which channel is the match against Scotland broadcast? TV details of the friendly match against Austria

Austria’s loss to Wales on Thursday in the play-off semi-final ended their hopes of participating in Qatar in November, but Scotland remain with their own play-off postponed until June due to the ongoing dispute in Ukraine and the Russian invasion.

The plan was for the losing semi-finalists to meet as the two winners battled for a place in Friday’s draw, but with Ukraine unable to compete in that window of international matches, Scotland agreed a friendly with the semi-finalist losing regardless and hope to meet Wales on their own terms in June.

Steve Clarke takes friendlies seriously as part of the play-off build-up and has named a solid line-up for the equally hastily organized game against Poland – another team indirectly affected by the conflict in Ukraine. He is expected to do the same in Vienna, looking to extend Scotland’s run to six unbeaten ties and last week’s draw.
