Euro 2016 : Scotland win 1 – 0 against Georgia

Scotland won their first home tie in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, defeating Georgia 1 – 0 at Ibrox Park. There was a lot of luck involved, but coach, Gordon Strachan, said the match was the ‘best game’ Scotland had played under his direction.

I have to agree with Mr Strachan. Scotland played an impressive game of football. The kept the majority of possession and made more chances than the opposition. Although Georgia were unlucky, Akaki Khubutia having the misfortune of deflecting the ball into his team’s net, and Irakli Dzaria sending the ball wide of the Scotland goal in the 80th minute, Scotland deserved the 3 points.
Scotland controlled most of the game. And if justice had been done, there would have been a few more Scottish goals. All said, it bodes well. If Scotland keep up the good work there is every chance of a positive result in Poland on Tuesday. Come on Scotland!!
