Lyndon Dykes has been relishing playing in Scotland colours – and the QPR man reckons the national team have a ‘great future’ ahead of them.
Australia or Scotland were the choices facing Dykes on the international scene, choosing the latter last month. It’s proven to be an inspired choice as he enjoys a fine start to life with Steve Clarke’s men.
QPR’s recent signing scored another crucial goal for Scotland over the weekend, notching a 52nd minute effort to seal a 1-0 win for the national team in UEFA Nations League action against Slovakia. It keeps Scotland top of the group ahead of a meeting with Czech Republic on Wednesday and stretches the unbeaten run to seven.
Two goals in four games isn’t bad for starters, Dykes making the navy number nine shirt his to lose. The QPR star says the current squad have great things waiting in the wings for them.
“Seven games unbeaten, another clean sheet, another goal for myself, it was a great night,” Dykes said of the Slovakia meeting. “I feel at home and really enjoying coming away and learning. I’m sure we’ve got a great future which I believe in.
“We’re focused on the next game against Czech Republic. Hopefully we can get the three points and I can get a hat-trick.
“Since I’ve come in I think we’re only getting better. We’re getting more understanding with the players, we’ve got great depth.
“We made a few changes tonight and they didn’t look out of place at all, and you’ve got boys coming off the bench that could be starting.”
