Poland scored a late equalizer against Scotland as they produced one of the close football scores of the weekend in a friendly. It was a hastily organized match after FIFA announced that their World Cup qualifier against Ukraine was postponed until June. Kieran Tierney scored his first international goal when he headed in a free-kick from John McGinn. Scotland was headed for their seventh win on the trot when Krzysztof Piatek equalized from the spot in the fourth minute of stoppage time. The referee had adjudged that goalkeeper Craig Gordon had brought down the striker in the box.
Scotland manager Steve Clarke: “It was a very soft penalty. You saw the players on the pitch, they wouldn’t let it go. Of course, they are disappointed, we want to win. They are out there representing their country, they know they are on a good run, they want to try to make another little bit of history, seven wins in a row would have been fantastic. We have another game on Tuesday night in Vienna, we want to go there and get back on the winning run again. They are disappointed to not win that game and I think we did enough and I thought we deserved to win the game but we move on.”
“It was a good performance, some decent chances in the first half, maybe not so many in the second. We got ourselves into a lot of good positions. They got a soft penalty, John McGinn could have got one before the Polish one which would have made it 2-0 and game over. VAR was not involved tonight, it probably would have straightened out both decisions. Congratulations to Wales, we will try to get there to play them in the play-off final.”
