Andy Robertson & Steve Clarke call for greater effort following Scotland’s remarkable 2-0 victory over Spain.

Scotland’s Captain, Andy Robertson, has demanded that Scotland maintains its stunning start in the Euro 2024 campaign. He warns that “six points don’t qualify you”.

Spain was stunned by Scott McTominay’s double at Hampden, and Scotland now leads their group with two wins out of two after their opening win over Cyprus.

Scotland will travel to Norway, then host Georgia in June, and knows that more points could set them up for a top-two finish.

“We’ve got two massive games in June,” Robertson said.

“If we come out of those games with the points we need, it’ll put us in a fantastic position.”

The Liverpool full-back emphasized the group’s belief and hailed their level of performance against Spain, which had not lost a European qualifier since 2014.

“We knew we had to put them under pressure and get the fans with us – and I think we did a really good job of that,” said Robertson.

“When you score so early, you kind of fall back a bit, but I thought the second half was a really professional performance and shows how far we’ve come.

“The game plan and the team set up was excellent tonight, and we could cause them problems,” Robertson added.

“We had belief. That was what was lacking before. There was a disconnect between players and fans. Playing in front of a full crowd makes a massive difference, but you’ve got to back it up with performances.”

Steve Clarke, the Scottish national team coach since 2019, praised the team for their outstanding performance against Spain, who they outfought and, at times, outplayed.

Clarke was quick to stress that the job is far from done, however. “It’s a big night, it feels like a step forward, but it’s only six points and you don’t qualify with six points,” he said.

Scotland needs to win more games in June, and that could be a pivotal month for the team’s qualification for the Euro 2024 campaign.

The team’s stunning start to the campaign has given them a confidence boost as they prepare for their next match.
