Strachan: No special Scotland tactics for Germany clash

Scotland coach Gordon Strachan will not alter their approach when they face world champions Germany, reports BBC Sport. The Scots open their Euro 2016 qualifying in Dortmund on 7 September.

"I was writing down plans and I looked at the board and thought, 'yeah, I've cracked it'," said Strachan of his plan to counter Joachim Low's side.

"Then I realised I had 14 men playing. But we're not going to change."

"You could chop and change for everybody you're playing against, it could confuse the players," he added.

"We have a couple of ways of defending and we're working on our attacking," he said. "But that will take time to really click and fully get what I want.

"Until that time we want to keep on winning games and gradually get to where we want to go."
