Joy for Kenny McLean who guided John McGinn’s pass home for the winner.

By Bill Heaney

I’ve got my ticket for Tuesday night at Hampden Park when 50,000 Scotland fans will turn up to celebrate their remarkable win against Norway in Oslo this evening.

West Dunbartonshire’s John McGinn was a major player in this famous victory which also had Helensburgh lad Scott MacTominay playing a blinder. The Scots were 1-0 down with five minutes to play when Aussie import Lyndon Dykes steered home the equaliser.

And then Norwich City midfielder Kenny McLean guided McGinn’s pass home for the winner.

The jolly red giant Erling Haaland scored his  22nd Norway goal after being fouled in the box by Porteous before an unbelievable Scotland comeback.

Scotland have now won their opening three qualifiers; six clear of Spain having played a game more and now everyone’s looking for a ticket to see Stevie Clarke’s side host Georgia at Hampden on Tuesday. See you there.

STOP PRESS: 3am Monday: Rory McIroy was beaten by just one shot by Wyndam Clark in the US Open. Great golf match.
