Scotland is one game away from making history at Euro 2020 after a goalless draw against England. The draw left them needing a victory in their final group game against Croatia. Scotland had the better of the chances to snatch all three points. They now turn their attention to the final game with a chance to reach the knockouts for the first time in their history.
“To produce a performance like that, hopefully it gives the lads a little bit more belief in their own ability, because sometimes they need to believe in themselves a little bit more.” Scotland assistant coach Steven Reid said after their draw with England at Euro 2020. “We have that feeling, a few of us spoke about it after the game, that we are not ready to go home yet. We want to go deeper into the tournament.”
“As good as the performance was against a very good England side, ultimately it means nothing if we are heading home on Wednesday.” he added. “We want to take the positives from the two games and hopefully get a goal or two as well. If we don’t get a goal, we are heading home.”
Scotland are hurting with the considerable lack of goals. The three forwards in their squad are all newcomers in Lyndon Dykes, Che Adams, and Kevin Nisbet. Adams and Nisbet both made their international debut in March this year. Scotland have failed to score in both their games thus far in the tournament.
“Where are they? Hopefully coming. Hopefully coming on Tuesday.” Reid said when asked about the lack of goals. “Maybe it’s just that rub of the green at the moment. We are getting into some great areas, creating a lot of chances. We have just got to keep working, keep getting into those positions, and at some point hopefully, we will get that goal or two that will hopefully see us into the next phase of the tournament.”
