Gordon Strachan insists he will not make things too confusing as Scotland prepare for Wednesday night's international friendly with Poland in Warsaw.
The Scots are playing their last scheduled match before Euro2016 qualifying begins later this year with a trip to Germany in September.
During that qualifying campaign, Scotland will come up against Poland which has some critics suggesting that the contest at the National Stadium this week could have some baring on what occurs at the same venue in October.
However, Strachan has made it clear that he is not thinking too far ahead as he simply prepares his players for the next fixture on their agenda.
"The qualifiers are a long time away, so a lot can happen between now and then," the Scotland manager told reporters.
"Players could develop, new faces could get into their side or into our side. So we'll just play this game as it is with the players who are here.
"I'll pick the boys who are looking the best in training and I'll play them. It's simple.
"I can't see either of us coming away with anything cosmic between now and the time we have to play them again."
Strachan added: "At Scotland, it's more of a team thing right now. I hope we develop individuals over the next year that can go and win games on their own."
