Outstanding effort Scotland! We’re not going to Brazil, but at last we’re seeing the right kind of results.

I was in Macedonia the last time Scotland played there. In the intense summer heat it was no surprise that the home side finished the game 1-0 ahead. Fortunately, under new management, Scotland have more than made up for that loss.

Ikechi Anya and Shaun Maloney are the two we have to thank for the goals. Anya, enjoying his first international start, opened the scoring, and Maloney sealed the victory by superbly converting a free kick in the 88th minute. And the whole team played well. Great work everyone. And here’s hoping these type of results continue.
