Scotland laundry Ukraine / Nations League B / Scotland-Ukraine (3-0) /

Scotland 3-0 Ukraine

But: McGinn (70e) and Dykes (80e and 87e) for the Tartan Army

Ukraine is obviously not a fan of tonic McGinn.

Three months after missing the boat in the race for the World Cup, Scotland takes revenge on Ukraine (3-0). Initially scheduled at the time of this barrage, this match offers a first period richer in slips than in opportunities. The Tartan Army attempts to take control of operations but proves too clumsy in the last move. Opposite, Ukraine, too shy, despite a few flashes of Mudryk, fails to obtain the slightest situation. Only a nice buffer from Bondar, probably more at ease at Murrayfield than at Hampden Park, on Adams (45e) heats up the atmosphere before all these beautiful people go to the locker room.

Reinvigorated by the break, Clarke’s men stifle those of Petrakov from the start by multiplying the situations. Armstrong starts the show but stumbles on Trubin following a cross from Tierney (58e) before dispatching his shot into the clouds (59e). Adams also goes there with his double opportunity by chaining a helmet shot on the bar (63e) and a strike perfectly stopped by the goalkeeper of Shaktar Donetsk (66e), solid this Wednesday evening. Trubin, on the other hand, can do nothing on the cross shot from the left of McGinn, who had torn off well to recover the leather (1-0, 70th). Exhausted, visitors end up completely cracking. Dikes double the bet on a corner (2-0, 80e) then takes advantage of a new set piece to definitively bury the success of his own (3-0, 87e) which represents the first place of the group in passing.

See you next Tuesday for the beauty.
