15 brilliant Scotland fans and players photos from Euro 2024 qualification win over Cyprus
By The Newsroom
Scotland are one step closer to Euro 2024 qualification after a convincing 3-0 win in Cyprus this evening. Scott McTominay headed the visitors in front before Ryan Porteous bagged the second. John McGinn fired home to make it 3-0 inside the opening 30 minutes.
A draw between Norway and Georgia on Tuesday will now clinch qualification as Steve Clarke's team maintained their 100% record in Group A. Scotland fans were as always in full voice tonight and here are 15 of the best fans and players pictures from the clash in Cyprus.
Former Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski said on Wednesday he hopes Harry Kane breaks his goal record with the German champions. Lewandowski chalked up the mark in 2020-21, breaking the 49-year-old record of 40 goals in a season scored by German striker Gerd Mueller, also for Bayern.
Steve Borthwick is poised to reprise the George Ford and Owen Farrell midfield partnership for the final Pool D match, against Samoa on Saturday, while Joe Marchant is in line for a surprise start on the wing.
The Premier League have released audio conversations between Video Assistant Referee officials laying bare the panic that set in after Luis Diaz’s goal was wrongly disallowed during Liverpool’s defeat at Tottenham.
As the straw man argument persists about the validity of a replay between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool (Liverpool have never asked for one) and why there is no refereeing conspiracy (no-one beyond social media has suggested there is), the Premier League must consider an inconvenient question following the release of the audio surrounding Luis Diaz’s ‘goal’.
Jurgen Klopp believes the statement that Liverpool released against the backdrop of the VAR controversy they were on the end of in their loss to Tottenham Hotspur was ‘completely normal’. Luis Diaz’s goal in the first half was ruled offside despite clearly being in a legal position and VAR referee Darren England failed to overturn the decision. England thought that Diaz had been onside with a quick check completed before realising his mistake.
Stick or twist. That’s effectively the decision Bob MacIntyre is facing after being urged to make the biggest call of his life to give himself the best possible chance to fulfil “more dreams” on the back of elevating his status as a Ryder Cup winner.
