Chelsea and Norwich City midfielder Billy Gilmour is enjoying life with the Scotland national team – but he’s aiming to be ‘more clinical’ in navy blue.

Norwich City’s Chelsea loanee won his second Man of the Match award in only his third competitive Scotland appearance during Saturday’s 1-0 World Cup 2022 qualifying win over Moldova. It moves Scotland into third in Group F but Gilmour missed a great chance in the second half to make it 2-0 after good work from striker Kevin Nisbet.

Gilmour says that while pleased with the overall experience and his performance, he needs to improve in front of goal: “I enjoyed it a lot – but I should’ve scored. It was a good result, but should’ve scored myself and we should’ve had more goals altogether.

“But it’s three points and a positive result. I should’ve scored, I think I just got too excited. It’s great play from Nizzy to me and then I missed the opportunity. I have to be more clinical.

 

“We had chances to put them to bed. I had that opportunity, a few others too. We just need to make sure we put them away. I’m loving it, I love coming away with Scotland and putting on the jersey and representing the country.”
