Manchester United and Scotland star Scott McTominay has explained the emotional scenes in Belgrade as Scotland partied long into the night.
The midfielder-turned centre-back at international level was in Serbia just over a week ago as Scotland sealed Euro 2020 qualification. It sparked emotional scenes as the Manchester United star and friends reveled in the moment.
A place at a major tournament was secured via a 5-4 penalty shootout win over the Serbians. Red Devils enforcer McTominay stepped up to score one of the pressure penalties.
Scotland boogied long into the night as the players celebrated with staff at a Serbian hotel until the early hours of Friday morning.
McTominay has detailed (BT) what went on following David Marshall’s game-winning save: “I went third but with VAR these days, if the goalkeeper comes slightly off his line, the referee can say it has to be taken again because he’s too far off his line.
“When big Marshall saved that, all the videos were so good, we were singing his name for three or four hours! It was amazing, so good.
“Everybody was singing his name for three or four hours in the hotel. We got back to the hotel and all the staff were Serbian. I don’t think they were too happy about us singing and dancing!
“It was loud and rowdy. None of us were tired, even though we had just played 120 minutes. It was just going for hours and hours. Everyone was so pleased and relieved. For myself it was amazing.”
