Manchester United midfielder Scot McTominay continued showing fine form for his country as he bagged another goal for Scotland on Thursday, November 16.
McTominay scored his seventh goal in Euro 2024 qualifying as his nation fought back twice in an entertaining 2-2 draw against Georgia.
The equalizer he scored on Thursday was a milestone for the midfielder, who equalled a national team record held by Steven Fletcher and John McGinn.
His goal cancelled Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s strike after the Napoli star initially gave the hosts the lead, as reported by BBC.
Thanks to his prowess in front of goal for Scotland, Manchester United fans are making the same observation about the midfielder.
Some United faithful joked that 26-year-old McTominay would be much more lethal for his club if given more chances and freedom in the middle of the park.
“Scot McTominay transforms into prime Pele everytime he plays for Scotland.”
“Give him jersey number 9 and play him upfront.”
“This guy is scoring on a regular like a striker, he’s in form.”
“I see him have +5 goals for man utd this season.”
Initially frozen out by Ten Hag, McTominay’s moment came when he scored two injury-time goals to help United come from behind to secure a 2-1 win over Brentford on October 7. That brace changed the course of his season, as he is now back to being a regular member of Ten Hag’s squad.
Has Scotland qualified for Euro 2024?
Thankfully, the draw against Georgia will do little to hurt Scotland’s campaign, as they have already qualified for the tournament alongside Spain in Group A.
