Scotland star John McGinn will be spying on England players in the leadup to their titanic Euro 2020 group stage clash on Friday.
The Scots are reeling after an opening game 2-0 defeat to the Czech Republic.
A positive result against England may be essential to their hopes of progressing from a group that also includes Croatia.
Mings said: "Will John be spying on us this week? Absolutely. There won't be a video that England have put out that John wouldn't have watched.
"He watches everybody. He will be looking at every country. His knowledge and his interest in football is incredible."
