European ‘minos’ Scotland, pulled off the biggest upset of the 2024 European qualifiers after beating former champions Spain 2-0 to continue their perfect start in Group A, on Tuesday.
A brace from Manchester United player Scott McTominay ensured to spoil the party for the former number-one-ranked team.
McTominay opened his account after smashing in a deflected shot in the seventh minute, to give the Scottish team an unlikely early advantage at Hampden Park.
Despite a more sedated second half by the host team, McTominay was again in the right place at the right time as he launched a 51st-minute strike to disturb the Spain net and double Scotland’s lead.
The two-goal deficit was too much of a shock for the former title holders as they failed to penetrate their opponent’s defense and ultimately conceded the victory after full-time.
The result was Scotland’s first competitive victory over Spain in 39 years as they now move atop Group A with a maximum of six points from two, while Espana falls to second on three points.
