Yep, you read that correctly – Scott McTominay has scored for Scotland against Spain. Twice.
It comes just days after he netted a late brace for his country against Cyprus on Saturday having come on as a late substitute.
As a reward, Steve Clarke awarded the Manchester United midfielder with a start in their next Euro 2024 qualifier, and he didn’t take long to make good of this decision, opening the scoring against Spain on Tuesday after just seven minutes.
It’s becoming more and more known that McTominay came through Manchester United’s youth system while playing as a striker. He’s certainly got those goal scoring instincts.
Scotland managed to hold off Spain’s advances for the rest of the first half, and just after the break, McTominay added a second, lashing home after the visitors were unable to clear a cross from Kieran Tierney.
So the real question now is should United sell him to Newcastle this summer? What should the asking price be?
