Posted by

After a thrilling victory in Austria, Scotland resurrected their World Cup 2022 qualification chances by rising into a play-off spot. Steve Clarke’s side took a 1-0 lead in Vienna thanks to Lyndon Dykes’ penalty, which was granted after a VAR assessment.

After surviving an Austria penalty appeal, Stephen O’Donnell and Che Adams had chances to calm the Scots’ concerns.

Despite tremendous second-half pressure, the visitors held on for a precious and well-deserved away win.

When combined with Denmark’s 5-0 win over Israel, Scotland moved up two places to second. With four games remaining, Clarke’s side is a point ahead of Israel, who visit Hampden next. They are also four points ahead of Austria.
