Scotland captain and Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson says Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour ‘can have as many caps as he wants’ for the national team.
The 20-year-old stole the show on Friday in a 0-0 Euro 2020 draw with England at Wembley, in what was the Chelsea midfielder’s international debut. His efforts alongside the likes of Liverpool man Robertson means a win over Croatia on Tuesday could be enough to send Scotland into the next stage of the Euros.
Robertson said: “I thought we were the better team. On another night we could have won it and I don’t think anyone can really argue with that. The feeling that we have now, the feeling that the fans have, it’s important we keep that and it’s not for nothing. We take it down to the last game and that’s all we ask.
“We have to use it to get out of the group. Billy Gilmour…my god! The boy is so calm I think he fell asleep on the pitch at times. I spoke to him in hotel today and just looked at him and to be fair to Billy nothing fazes him. That’s why I believe he can have as many caps as he wants/. He’s got a huge future ahead but the here and now is pretty good.”
