Scotland suffered a 2-0 defeat to the Czech Republic on Monday afternoon despite playing at Hampden Park. Then Scots finally took part in their first major tournament for 23 years but failed to match the occasion with their performance – but Scotland fans did praise Liverpool ace Andy Robertson.
Steve Clarke named Robertson on the left side of a back five, with Kieran Tierney missing due to injury. Despite the presence of John McGinn, Scott McTominay and Lyndon Dykes – Scotland failed to get a result, or even score. That is, despite boasting chances, especially in the second half.
Liverpool ace Robertson was Scotland’s only attacking threat, fans have their say
While Scotland did play well, it has to be said that the Liverpool defender was Scotland’s only attacking threat. Nothing came from the right, as Stephen O’Donnell struggled to supply the width. Robertson was far more effective, and even nearly scored himself – having an effort tipped over.
But Czech Republic striker Patrik Schick was the main man, scoring a brilliant header and then probably the goal of the tournament. His left-footed effort was from the halfway line with David Marshall off his line. Scotland fans praised Robertson, despite the result.
