Scott McTominay turned in a terrific shift for Manchester United on Tuesday night – something he managed with just one eye.
The Scotland star impressed during the international break, shining at centre-back instead of his usual battling Manchester United midfield role.
It helped earn Scotland a Euro 2020 play-off final spot against Serbia next month, when they will meet to see who goes to the major tournament next summer.
For now he’s back on the domestic scene with Manchester United and he’s shining there too. McTominay was brilliant as the Red Devils beat PSG 2-1 over in Paris.
Preferred to the likes of Paul Pogba in the heart of midfield, Scotland’s star pulled off a remarkable feat in the Parc de Princes. He managed to play the entire first half with one eye.
McTominay lost a contact lens during the opening 45 but still managed to shackle the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar before regaining full vision. Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed the Scotsman.
“They’re in good form now, they’re good players and they played really well against Newcastle,” said Solskjaer (BBC). “They laid the foundations for the win in that game, and I think they laid the foundation today as well.
“Scotty played the first half as well with only one eye, that was the most impressive thing, because he lost his contact lens. So that was impressive.”
