Scott McTominay inspired Scotland to a famous victory against Spain in their Euro 2024 qualifier on Tuesday night.
The Manchester United midfielder scored twice – for the second time in two games for his country – to lead the Scots to a stunning and fully deserved 2-0 win.
Scotland went into the clash at Hampden Park off the back of their 3-0 win over Cyprus on Saturday.
McTominay scored two goals in that victory, and it didn’t take him long to find the back of the net once again.
Liverpool’s Andy Robertson made the most of Pedro Porro’s slip and guided the ball into the path of the United midfielder.
He made no mistake from inside the box, to send the home crowd wild after just seven minutes.
McTominay continued to impress for his country until the break, before emerging as the hero once again in the second half.
A superb driving run down the left from Arsenal defender Tierney created the opportunity.
After running almost the length of the pitch with the ball and evading challenges, Tierney’s cross into the area was cleared by David Garcia, but the onrushing McTominay was there to fire in with a classy first-time effort with his left foot.
Once again, Scotland fans were sent into raptures, with two Premier League stars putting club allegiances aside to combine to stunning effect for their country.
McTominay, who has had limited game time at United this season, has now scored five international goals in 38 appearances – four of them coming in the last week.
Scotland held on comfortably until the final whistle, claiming an outstanding win to keep them top of their qualifying group as they set their sights on next year’s tournament in Germany.
“This is a win they’ll talk about for decades… I can hardly believe it,” talkSPORT’s David Tanner said moments after the final whistle.
