Steve Clarke: Scotland feeling the love from the Tartan Army

Scotland boss Steve Clarke feels that the team is feeling the love of the Tartan Army after their dramatic 3-2 win over Israel in a crucial World Cup qualifying game. He hopes that the team can carry the momentum from their win for their next game against the Faroe Islands. The win over Israel meant that Scotland have a playoff spot in their own hands. The team was met with ferocious acclaim from a sold-out Hampden Park after the game.

“It was important the other night, not to milk it, that’s not the right phrase, but for the public and the players to have that little moment after the game.” Scotland boss Steve Clarke said. “It was a group of players who qualified for that major tournament after 23 years and they did that in an empty stadium and there has never really been the chance to have that interaction between the players and the supporters.”

“It was good for the confidence, good for the belief, and good for them to feel loved. Footballers are no different from anyone else, we all like to feel the love,” he added. “That was the nice thing at the end of the game that we could do that. Obviously, we scored a goal after 93 minutes and everybody has that euphoria. But there was still 50,000 in the stadium, they all waited, they believed in the team, they believed we could nick it 3-2 which we did. It was a nice moment.”
