The want-away Manchester United striker starts just behind his teammate Danny Welbeck, with Steven Gerrard and Jack Wilshere in midfield. Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill are chosen at center-back, with Kyle Walker at right-back, with Tom Cleverley in an unfamiliar position on the wing.
Meanwhile, Gordon Strachan has chosen a very offensive lineup to take to the field, with four attacking midfielders playing ahead of Scott Brown. James Forrest is to start along with Shaun Maloney on the wings, while Kenny Miller comes into the side after impressing for his club, with Leigh Griffiths dropping to the bench. James Morrison continues in midfield, but relinquishes the captain's armband to Scott Brown.
Scotland starting lineup (4-5-1): Allan McGregor; Alan Hutton, Grant Hanley, Russell Martin, Steven Whittaker; Robert Snodgrass, Scott Brown; James Forrest, James Morrison, Shaun Maloney; Kenny Miller.
