Levein: All change for Scotland squad

Scotland coach Craig Levein will make changes for Tuesday's game with Liechtenstein, following Friday's Euro 2012 qualifying draw in Lithuania. "You can't afford to go into any game expecting to win," Levein told BBC Radio Scotland. "That sets the wrong tone for the players.

"It will probably need one or two more flair players to try and break the opposition down.

"The shape might change and certainly the personnel will change." Liechtenstein fell 4-0 at home to World Cup winners Spain as Scotland were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw in Kaunas.

The central European principality lies at 141 in the Fifa rankings but Levein pointed out that they managed to hold Iceland to a draw three weeks ago.

"We need to have a good tempo, move the ball about quickly and try to expose them in one-on-one situations," explained Levein, looking ahead to Tuesday's game in Glasgow.

"Against any team that is well-organised and gets people behind the ball and defends properly, then you need a goal to get in front and change things.

"Their heads can go down and our tails will go up."
