Many may wish to be a fly on the wall of Andy Robertson and John McGinn’s first conversation on Scotland international duty after Aston Villa’s incredible rout of Liverpool.

The Villans have started the season strongly but nobody could have predicted the demolition job they did on Liverpool. McGinn’s team thrashed Jurgen Klopp’s side 7-2 at Villa Park.

Dean Smith’s men were 4-1 up at half time, McGinn running the show in midfield alongside Douglas Luiz and Ross Barkley.

Notching a goal and an assist, McGinn certainly played his part in one of the most memorable afternoons the Premier League has ever witnessed, Manchester United thrashed 6-1 by Tottenham earlier on Sunday at Old Trafford.


For Robertson, he must put this horrible result for Liverpool behind him ahead of Scotland duty this week.

McGinn and Robertson team up to take on Israel, the winner of this one facing Norway or Serbia next month for a place at Euro 2020 next summer. There could be contrasting moods for these two men after Sunday’s events.
