Hibernian striker Marc McNulty can still be proud of making his international debut, despite missing an absolute sitter for Scotland.

The hitman made his debut in the second-half of the game, and was given a golden chance to open his international account.

A James Forrest cross gave McNulty the simplest of tasks to head the ball into the net. Unfortunately, he put the ball wide. The game ended 2-0 to Scotland.

Despite the miss, McNulty performed well enough in his cameo. Indeed, he played a part in the second Scottish goal. His dummy put the ball through to Johnny Russell, who finished in style.

McNulty can be delighted with the progress he has made since moving to Hibernian in January. His seven goals in nine games have helped to transform the Easter Road side’s season.

Now he has to keep his good run going. If he can continue to play well, he is more than capable for getting back into the Scotland for the games in June against Cyprus and Belgium.

That and helping Hibernian reach the top six must be his aim between now and the end of the season. Few would have expected that a few months ago when McNulty joined Hibs, so congratulations must be given to the player.
