Out of position? That’s no bother for Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay, who strolled it at centre-back for Scotland against England.

The battler was shifted into centre-back as part of Scotland manager Steve Clarke’s attacking reshuffle during the 0-0 draw with England at Wembley. McTominay kept the likes of England captain Harry Kane quiet as the Manchester United star shone.

Clarke has opted to play McTominay on the right-hand-side of his 3-5-2 system in the early stages of Euro 2020 qualifying, but threw the Manchester United man back in on the biggest stage. He coped admirably.

Both he and right-wing-back Stephen O’Donnell ensured there was no threat down England’s left. It also allowed – perhaps crucially – Billy Gilmour to come into the game and dictate things the way he did. Scotland fans have not lost sight of the Manchester United star’s display.
