Lithuania 0 – 0 Scotland – A bad start to Euro qualification

Scotland had to win. With teams like Spain and the Czech Republic in our group, we needed all the points we can get against the other teams. So 6 points out of the first two games, against Lithuania and Liechtenstein, had to be a necessity. Well, now that isn’t going to happen.

I guess we didn’t play too bad. There were a few good chances by Scotland and we were the better team with more shots at goal than the opposition. However it was the same problem as in many other games – we just can’t seem to score. As one of the pundits pointed out, Scotland haven’t scored a competitive goal away from home in two years, the last goal being James McFadden’s goal against Iceland in 2008.

Now we face Liechtenstein on Tuesday, at Hampden. A decisive victory must be on the cards. 3-0? 4-0? Maybe then, with an impressive victory behind them the Scotland squad can go on and take some points from Spain or (more realistically) the Czechs.
