Watch: Aston Villa’s John McGinn scores first goal for Scotland.

MCGINN: SCOTLAND GOAL

John McGinn’s opener, his first at international level, unfortunately wasn’t enough to see Scotland to victory over Russia.

Despite a promising start, the well drilled visitor’s comfortably took control, courtesy of an own goal and a second that would prove to be the winning strike on 60 minutes.  Things could have been much worse though, with Russia striking the woodwood 3 times.

McGinn, already in good form for Villa in our return season in the Premier League, scored for the first time in sixteen appearances for the Scots.

For Scotland and McGinn, qualification now looks increasingly difficult and a hapless looking Steve Clarke (Roberto Di Matteo’s former assistant at Villa Park), watching the latest failure play out in front of a Hampton Park that was barely half full.
