Scotland have confirmed they will face World Cup runners-up France in Lille on Tuesday October 17 – their final friendly of 2023.
The match at Decathlon Arena will take place five days after Scotland face Spain in their Euro 2024 qualifier.
Steve Clarke’s side are currently unbeaten in six competitive matches and sit top of Group A after two games.
France have won both of their Group B qualifiers since losing the World Cup final to Argentina on penalties.
Didier Deschamps’ side beat the Netherlands 4-0 in Paris before beating the Republic of Ireland 1-0 in Dublin and will face Clarke’s side four days after the comeback against the Dutch in Amsterdam.
Scotland’s game against the team currently ranked second in the world will bring back memories of a famous brace against France in the Euro 2008 qualifying campaign.
Gary Caldwell stabbed home to claim a 1-0 victory at Hampden Park in 2006 before an iconic 35-yard strike from James McFadden secured a famous victory for Scotland at the Parc des Princes the following year.
In total, Scotland have won eight and lost eight of the teams’ encounters, with the French triumphing with a 3-0 victory at home in the last friendly of 2016.
