Euro 2024 qualifying; What have they been feeding McTominay?

I have one simple question, what have they been feeding him? When he plays for Manchester United, he’s something of a bit part player and when he does play, both he and Fred get ridiculed.

Scott McTominay is the man I am referring to of course, but if this week’s goal burst is anything to go by, I think it’s Scotland McTominay. Four goals in two games will make any striker feel redundant, Messrs Dykes, McGinn and Christie appearing a bit redundant at the top end of the pitch.

Manchester United will be hoping that their midfielder can get some where near to his international from at club level.

Tongue-in-cheek comments aside, it’s been some week for Scotland. With the greatest respect to the Cypriots, Steve Clarke’s Scotland should be beating Cyprus, but to do so by a 3-0 scoreline is impressive.

No one would have and could have predicted Spain’s loss to Scotland. No doubt the Hampden Park crowd would have played a factor in the famous win, but from a man, The Tartan Army were inspired.

As for Luis De La Fuerte’s Spain, they’re a team in transition. The former Spain Under 21 boss retained Joselu for this game, the 32-year-old who struggled to make an impression in England with Stoke and Newcastle respectively.

Due to no fault of the veteran coach, he’s working with restrictions, that being a lack of a recognised number nine. Although former Stoke striker Joselu scored twice last time out, he was bound to have his work cut out at Hampden, and so it proved.

No one, absolutely no one, would have been able to have predicted Tuesday’s result, but it’s a testament to the job former Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke is doing.

Elsewhere in this week’s qualifiers and over this last fortnight there have been some shocking results. From Wales drawing against Croatia, to Spain being humbled by Scotland.

Defending champions Italy saw their unbeaten home record end at the hands of their Euro 2020 opponents England.

France beat the Netherlands 4-0, which was a shocking scoreline, but not a shocking result. Les Bleus will no doubt be one of the favourites to win. As shocking as those results were, arguably Kazakhstan beating Denmark 3-2 was the biggest shock of this round of Euro 2024 qualifiers.

The next stop in the footballing calendar is the resumption of the domestic season. Thank God for that!
