Scotland Fail To Score And Mainly Bore v Costa Rica

Written by on March 23, 2018

It was sadly not a new era starting well with all guns blazing for Big Eck and his Scotland debutants.

The Tartan Army came, in limited numbers, in the hope of leaving Hampden Park with something to instil belief that under this regime things might be different.

Exactly the sentiment McLeish wants to ingrain in his squad as he begins his second spell as national manager.

Fans were left disappointed, particularly by a first-half performance that was uninspiring. The desired chinks of light were not particularly dazzling.

Scotland 0 Costa Rica 1. A familiar tale of home frustration and defence mattering more than attack for the men in dark blue.

McLeish wanted swagger but what he got was mostly boring to watch if you were a proud Scot.

Costa Rica repeated their result over us at a World Cup 28 years ago, Scotland never looked like gaining revenge for our opening group fixture defeat at Italia ’90

And so onto Hungary and the next friendly.

Scotland: McGregor, Paterson, Robertson, Hanley, Mulgrew (capt), McKenna, McTominay, McDonald, McBurnie, Cairney, Ritchie.

Subs: Archer, McLaughlin, Christie, Forrest, McGinn, Phillips, McGregor, Armstrong, Douglas, Murphy, Cummings, McLean, Fraser, Hendry.

Manager Alex McLeish’s first game in his second spell as Scotland Head Coach.
