Football Results: Faroe Islands 0-1 Scotland

Lyndon Dykes scored a late winner as Scotland narrowly edged out the Faroe Islands in one of the close football results of the weekend. The win left Scotland needing just one win over their last two qualifying games. They looked a shadow of the team that got the better of Israel in a high octane clash midweek. With just four minutes to go, the ball came of Dykes from a Nathan Patterson cross to creep into the net. There was a long check for handball before the goal was finally given.

Managers Reaction

Scotland manager Steve Clarke: “It was a tough night – what we expected, to be honest.” he added. “The Faroe Islands had lots of energy, put us on the back foot in the first half and made us a little bit nervous. We relied on Craig Gordan, who produced an unbelievable save and had great hands all night and gave us surety behind the defense, which was really important coming to a place like this.”

“Second half I thought we were better, we had better control of the game. Patience and belief, and just keep plugging away. You are not always going to win in a fantastic free-flowing style, maybe as we did second half Saturday when everyone’s excited.”
