Ryan Christie's Emotional Interview Shows What Euro 2020 Qualification Means To Scotland

Graphic Scotland without Fraser, Hanley for Serbia play-off
Hannah Rogers | 14 November, 2020, 17:03

The World Cup in France 1998 was the last time the Tartan Army were at a final tournament and on Thursday evening a victory on penalties over Serbia means they will be part of the Euro 2020 festival.

However, Luka Jovic, who replaced Nemanja Maksimovic in the 70th minute, converted a free header 20 minutes later and the teams could not be separated after an additional half an hour.

But just like in a semi-final shootout win over Israel, Scotland kept their cool with five flawless penalties and finally got over the line when David Marshall saved from Aleksandar Mitrovic. Scotland had gone up early in the match but Serbia equalised late to send things to extra time.

Steve Clarke might have wondered whether McGregor and Ryan Christie were up to the task ahead of Scotland's biggest game in recent history.

Despite Scotland's success, it was heartbreak for Northern Ireland in their play-off match against Slovakia after a narrow 2-1 defeat.

"It's a monkey off the back and we can move on from here".

Speaking on Sky Sports, he said: "Its an awesome night, we believed in the last couple of camps as we picked up so much belief in each other".

"I hope everyone is having a party, we deserve it, because we've been through so many years". It shows you the strength we've got to come back from that, we stuck together throughout.

"For the whole nation, its been a terrible year for everyone, we knew that coming into the game, we wanted to give something to this country".

In the dressing room afterwards, there was boogie-woogie.

Scotland will face Czech Republic at Hampden on June 14.

"He'll have that grit in his teeth and know that to go to the euros you need to perform week in, week out to be chosen for that tournament".
