The superior Scotland prevails in a landslide against Ukraine – football

The Scottish football team became the new captain of Group 1 of League B of the League of Nations, after beating Ukraine 3-0 on Wednesday, in a match where locals took home the prize for the biggest push against an indifferent Ukrainian group. Perhaps self-confident, due to the remarkable superiority he demonstrated on his recent visit to Glasgow, Ukraine lacked the intensity that allowed them to win a clear 1-3 victory over Scotland last June in the World Cup qualifiers from Qatar. .

A circumstance that allowed the locals to take over the game in the first half as the Scottish players emerged victorious in contention over each divided ball.

If, due to dedication, work and intensity, Steve Clark’s men could not be blamed, the lack of precision and above all the rush of the Scottish internationals in the vicinity did not leave the domestic field with nothing.

And that didn’t stop Scotland from enjoying every now and then the good event, made clear in the 23rd minute with a shot from the edge of the penalty area by Stuart Armstrong that Ukrainian goalkeeper Anatoly Tropin resolved with a big interference.

If Scotland lacked quality in the last metres, Ukraine hardly showed the talent so cherished by players like Andrey Yarmolenko, who disappeared in the entire first half, or Ruslan Malinovsky, who barely left the cross brushstrokes.

The fact that the Ukrainian attack was limited to the speed of young striker Mikhailo Modric, who returned to show the good manners he had already shown last week in the Champions League against Scottish Celtic Glasgow.
