Scott McTominay scored his first goal for Scotland at the weekend to earn his country an important three points in injury-time against Israel.
Scotland are currently second in the group, behind Denmark, with McTominay viewing the goal as one of the most important in his career to date. He’s clearly scored better goals but this will one he will remember for a long time, dedicating it to his father’s Scottish parents.
It’s probably not the best goal I’ll score, but in terms of importance, as you can see from what it means to all the Scotland fans here, it’s amazing. I’m struggling to put it into words. I don’t know what minute it was, but it was one I will never forget. It came at me pretty quickly and it was bouncing. Do you know what? It’s my grandad’s birthday on Monday, so I knew I had to score before it so yeah, that was one for my grandparents in Scotland.
We knew they are a difficult team, but in the first half we were so poor. We knew that at half-time. But I thought the second half was complete domination. We were extremely good and created numerous chances. We knew as players we needed to wake up and, credit to us, in the second half we did that.
