Scotland manager Steve Clarke revealed that there is a chance that Kieran Tierney will be able to face England. Scotland takes on England in their second match of Euro 2020. Tierney underwent light training on Tuesday after missing their opening match. Scotland suffered a humiliating 2-0 loss to the Czech Republic in front of their home fans.
“He did a little bit of light training and we will just see how he progresses. He’s got a chance.” Scotland boss Steve Clarke said when asked about Kieran Tierney.
Scotland conceded a sensational goal scored by Patrick Schick from 48 yards out. The back pedaling David Marshall could not keep the ball out. Clarke though said that he refused to blame the veteran.
“David’s fine,” he said. “Experienced player, knows the game. He’s probably faced that type of shot – I think he said about 50 times in his career – and that’s the only time it’s gone in. It happens. I don’t understand the criticism of David. It was a shot for Jack Hendry at the edge of the box, three seconds later the ball’s in the back of our net. The blocked shot can go anywhere, it fell perfectly for [Schick] to run onto and hit.”
“The players will be looking forward to it, I’m looking forward to it, and I’m sure the Tartan army – the ones that have got tickets for it – will be looking forward to it as well,” he added. “Every game in the tournament is a big game. I think the fact that it’s against our friends from south of the border makes it extra special. So yeah, it’s a good game for us. We respect their ability, they’re a top team. They got into the last four of the last World Cup.”
