McTominay’s Stoppage-Time Winner Gives Scotland Crucial World Cup Qualifying Victory

Posted by

Scott McTominay’s stoppage-time winner against Israel kept Scotland on track for the World Cup qualifying play-offs, causing chaos at Hampden.

After Eran Zahavi’s spectacular free-kick and a Munas Dabbur finish put the visitors ahead twice in a thrilling match, the Manchester United midfielder bundled in his first Scotland goal.

After having a poor penalty saved, Lyndon Dykes volleyed an equaliser that was belatedly granted after a VAR assessment after the break.

Scotland’s concerted pressure appeared to be failing until McTominay pounced to put his team two wins away from a play-off berth, with trips to the Faroe Islands and Moldova on the horizon.

With three games remaining in the battle to finish second to Denmark, Steve Clarke’s team are four points ahead of Israel.
