Scotland impress with 3 – 0 victory in Lithuania

Scotland produced an impressive 3 – 0 victory on Friday evening. The result was enough to lift them up to third place in World Cup qualifying Group F.

An energetic approach helped provide the goals. Scotland were by far the better team, claiming most of the possession and making more chances than the hosts. It was therefore no surprise when Armstrong put Scotland ahead in the 25th minute. Full-back Andy Robertson followed up soon after with an amazing curled into the net. Then, James McArthur provided the third goal in the second half.

Scotland’s situation is now more promising. Rising to third position, they are now 4 points behind Slovakia. It won’t be easy to take second position, but it now seems a lot more possible.
