Liverpool ace Andrew Robertson enjoyed a superb night on Thursday as he captained Scotland to their first major tournament in 22 years.
Steve Clarke’s charges broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute when Ryan Christie collected a pass from Callum McGregor, carved out space for himself on the edge of the box, and fired a low effort into the net off the keeper’s left-hand post.
Things took a turn for the worse late on when Luka Jovic equalised in the 90th minute, but it all worked out well in the end as the game went to penalties and Scotland triumphed, David Marshall keeping out Aleksandar Mitrovic’s spot kick.
As well as his crucial penalty save, Marshall made a superb stop in the 98th minute from a long-range Nemanja Gudelj rocket, keeping Scotland level en route to spot kicks.
Needless to say, the Derby County keeper is a popular man in Scotland right now, with fans and teammates literally singing the 35-year-old’s praises.
And Robertson was just one of many to praise the “legend of a man” as his name was being sung to the tune of Whigfield’s Saturday Night:
What a legend of a man 🏴💙 https://t.co/C70gfZJDFC
