We asked who you would like to see start for Scotland against Northern Ireland on Tuesday, following Friday's disappointing result against the Netherlands.

Here's what you had to say:

Graeme: I thought the performance against the Netherlands was far from disastrous but Lawrence Shankland needs to score if he wants to start. I would give him another shot against Northern Ireland but if he can’t perform on Tuesday he should be on the bench in Germany.

Patrick: Personally, I wasn't impressed with Shankland's performance in front of goal. He played well as an all-rounder, but ultimately was ineffective in the final third. In my opinion, I think starting either Che Adams, a promising and fast forward, or Lyndon Dykes, our main aerial threat, would help us significantly in front of goal.

Brodie: Lewis Ferguson in from the beginning please alongside Billy Gilmour. That gives us a defensive and an attacking player in the middle.

Doug: We have to start Tuesday’s game with our best XI and treat it like a competitive match. We can’t afford not to win this game from a morale point of view. A goalkeeping change is also needed.

Lewis: Go with the same starting XI, there is no need to change it. Play with the same level of intensity as Friday night and the goals will come. Then look to see out the game with a clean sheet. Three wins and three clean sheets in these next three friendlies will do wonders for confidence.

Anon think there has to be a real discussion about Nathan Patterson. I was his biggest backer but honestly the boy doesn't look sharp of mind. We can't go up against the big guns with him at right wing-back.

Ryan: Ferguson has got to start for me. He's only started one game for Scotland in an attacking midfield role and deserves a chance to start in the position he plays for Bologna.
