The Monday Miscellany – World Cup Special

“There were two Scotland teams on Saturday. In the first half, we saw the befuddled and talentless side that floundered so badly in Amsterdam and Oslo, with Macedonia creating the better chances – such as there were any – before half time. Then, in the 56th minute, a low, awkward cross from Steven Fletcher was headed in, quite brilliantly, by Scotland’s best player, the Celtic midfielder Scott Brown. In an instant, the team were transformed. Once Scotland began playing, they were clearly better than the visitors, their superiority neatly summed up by comparing two similar chances.” (Footballing World)
