MANCHESTER UNITED midfielder Scott McTominay continued his scoring streak for Scotland on Friday as Steve Clarke’s side cruised to a 3-0 win over Cyprus.
The 26-year-old broke the deadlock just six minutes into the Euro 2024 qualifier with a header from close range.

Left-back Andy Robertson sent a cross to Aston Villa’s John McGinn in the box, who deflected the ball into the path of McTominay at the back post.
The midfielder then simply flicked the ball into the gaping net to fire Scotland into an early lead.
McTominay now leads the Euro 2024 qualifying top scorers table with six goals and one assist in five games – ahead of Rasmus Hojlund and Romelu Lukaku.
Fans took to social media to praise the Man Utd star, with one person tweeting: “McTominay is always on fire for Scotland!”
A second fan wrote: “Scott McTominay turns into prime R9 when he plays international football.”
Another added: “McTominay on fire for the Scots, can’t get a look in and nearly got sold for United!”
While a fourth joked: “Maybe McTominay should play as a 9😂.”
Despite the midfielder’s impressive form on the international level, he has fallen out of favour with Man Utd manager Erik ten Hag.
He has played just seven minutes so far in the Premier League this season, with Casemiro and Christian Eriksen currently the Dutchman’s preferred midfield duo.
McTominay almost left Old Trafford on deadline day when Fulham attempted to complete a transfer.
The Cottagers saw him as the perfect replacement for Joao Palhinha, who came close to joining Bayern Munich.
West Ham also attempted to sign the midfielder, but they could not agree a transfer fee with Man Utd.
