Dynamic, excellent technique and a high basic speed ensured that the Spaniards could only defend themselves over time with a lot of luck. McTominay’s teammate Luke Shaw said: “He was absolutely fantastic for us all season long”. McTominay also wants to take this responsibility in the Scottish team. Coach Clarke has high expectations from the 24-year-old. “He’s definitely demanding and it’s good for my game”McTomin says.

It was always my dream, but now I’m living it and it’s unbelievable”Adams, who is considered his team’s best attacker. “He has done really well lately, scoring goals and looking like a player who can play on the international stage”Clarke says.
For some, Kieran Tierney is the key player in Clark’s team. defensive specialist from FC Arsenal He was in excellent form last season. The 24-year-old scored four assists and one goal as a left defender.
In the Scottish national team, however, left-footed Tierney can be used as a right central defender, so that coach Clarke Robertson and Tierney can introduce both to the starting line-up. At least that’s what Clarke made in the pre-season games. Will it remain like this? “I want to make tough decisions and have sleepless nights”Clarke says.
