Netherlands 1-2 Scotland LIVE SCORE: Kevin Nisbet puts Scots back ahead against Holland in Euro 2020 warm-up

SCOTLAND are back in front against Holland in a Euro 2020 warm-up in Portugal.

Despite being depleted by coronavirus, Steve Clarke's men have given a great account of themselves against the Netherlands.

Jack Henry gave the Tartan Army the lead with an early low drive.

But the advantage was short lived as Memphis Depay levelled things for the Dutch.

However Kevin Nisbet popped up to put the Scots in front again in Faro.
