Scotland vs. San Marino Time for Scotland to call it a day if they don’t beat team of part timers

Scotland will be relying on the Nations League play-offs to make it to Euro 2020 after yet another dismal display in qualification.

Steve Clarke’s side suffered their fourth defeat on the bounce against Russia, making it mathematically impossible to qualify via the traditional way.

Their second half collapse, which saw them ship four goals, leaves them twelve points off the top two with just three group games remaining.

They’ve taken six points from a possible 21 and sit second from bottom in Group I, only part timers San Marino, who Scotland face on Sunday, are worse off.

If Scotland don’t beat San Marino then apologies to any Scottish readers, but it’s time for you boys to call it a day. San Marino are awful.

They’ve not won a game in years. Fair play to them, though.

Their lads take a few days off from plumbing, stacking shelves or whatever it is they do full time and get to step out on the field with some of the biggest names in world football. But on Monday it’ll be Scotland, not quite so glamorous.

In fact the way the Scots have been playing Franco Varrella’s side might be confident of getting a result.

No, but in all seriousness Scotland should hammer San Marino, especially on home soil. If it’s not by 5 or 6 goals at least then serious question marks will be asked about Steve Clarke’s future.

Belgium put 9 past the minnows on Thursday and it’s 10/11 for Scotland -5 on the handicap. The way Scotland have been playing, though, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a much more respectable scoreline. They’re 11/2 to win 4-0 and 16/1 to win 2-0, which incidentally is the same scoreline they won by away from home in the reverse fixture.

Lawrence Shankland could lead the line for Scotland and he’s 2/1 to open the scoring.

Scotland are a ridiculously shirt 1/50 to bag all three points, the draw is 40/1 and San Marino are a staggering 80/1 to secure their first win in decades.

Surely worth a quid or two considering Scotland’s recent form, eh?
