Scotland’s disappointing defeat against Georgia

Scotland manager, Gordon Strachan has his sights set on the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. A result against the World Cup winners and praised his team’s efforts despite a crushing defeat in Tbilisi.

He openly admitted that his side will require taking at least 1 point when they play Monday’s 2016 qualifier match.
Although the team has slipped to fourth place in Group D after being overtaken by the Republic of Ireland, this could all change with three games still to play. The visit of Germany to Hampden Park is a must-win match.

Strachan told Sky Sports “We’ll get over the disappointment and bring that into a good performance”.The result gave Georgia their second qualifying win as the national team struggled to create openings to win.

Mr Strachan said that “although we were unfortunate in defeat, the players and the team as a whole did more than enough to achieve a better result”. “We did our best not to get beaten but not enough to win”.

“There were no real problems as such with the game”. “The team as a whole, made sure they felt comfortable with what they were asked to do.”

“Important the first goal isn’t just given away to the other team. The opposing team are hard to break down as they are used to defending”. “Didn’t have that magic touch, that X-Factor to help us win”.

“They tried to pass the ball and to be inventive. They gave it their best shot and that’s all you can really ask. Although they gave us what they’ve got unfortunately on the night itself, the final pass was just a little short”.
