Scotland Just One Game Away From Euro 2020

Scotland are one game away from their first major finals since 1998 after a nerve-shredding win on penalties against Israel at Hampden.

Kenny McLean scored the pivotal spot-kick in the depleted Scots’ first ever shootout, with only a victory in Serbia on 12 November now separating Steve Clarke’s men from Euro 2020.

How ironic would it be that and a 23-year wait that Scotland reach the finals of a major competition and the Tartan Army could not attend because of COVID!
