Ché Adams’ late goal in last night’s 2-0 win over Denmark put the seal on an incredible 12 months for the national team as well as the Southampton star as Scotland took another step closer to securing a return to the World Cup for the first time since 1998 – and the striker could barely find the words to sum up the rollercoaster of a year 2021 has been for him.

After making his debut earlier this year, Adams represented Scotland at Euro 2020 before helping Steve Clarke’s side record six wins in a row in competitive games for the first time in almost a century, grabbing a handful of goals along the way.

The Southampton star believes there is plenty more to come from Scotland as they edged closer Qatar 2022 and the Scotland striker was overjoyed to score in front of the Tartan Army at Hampden last night.

“You can’t put it into words”, said Adams [Glasgow Times]. “How many times I’ve been capped, the performances we’ve played in.

“It’s a good bunch of lads here, tight-knit and that’s what the manager has made us do. He’s brought everyone together and you can see that on the pitch.

“We’re looking forward now with positivity and self-belief because tonight was outstanding from everyone. We really deserved that tonight.

“It’s a great performance from everyone, I think we fully deserved the three points. We are looking forward now, no looking back.

 

“You know once the fans are here and everyone is here together, there is no telling what we can do.

“We know what we are capable of and we just have to believe that.

“It’s always nice to score but the most important thing was to win and we did that.

“I’ve been in a couple of situations like that before and snatched at things, I just took my time this time and was happy to see it hit the back of the net.”
