Liverpool and Scotland left-back Andy Robertson will join the prestigious Roll of Honour tonight when he leads the national team out against Moldova at Hampden Park.
The International Roll of Honour is a list established by the Scottish Football Association to recognise players who have made 50 or more international appearances for Scotland. Robertson – Scots head coach Steve Clarke’s captain – stands on 49 caps and barring any late hitches, the Liverpool man will skipper the nation again tonight.
There are 32 players on the list, which is topped by Liverpool legend Sir Kenny Dalglish on 102 caps. The last entrant was Steven Naismith in 2019 and Robertson will be the latest inductee tonight.
Scotland play Moldova and Austria before the end of the international break. Victories in each match will be key if the national team are to progress to World Cup 2022 from Group F, having lost 2-0 to Denmark on Wednesday. Scotland have five points from four games in the group.
Clarke said of the match against Moldova tonight: “We can’t think too much about the Austria game – we have to win against Moldova. Nobody’s shying away from that. We need points that keep us in contention towards the end of the group stage so that we’re always fighting and, come October-November, we’re in the mix for qualification.”
