Arsenal invincible Patrick Vieira says Chelsea and Scotland star Billy Gilmour ‘has a really good future ahead of him’ after a Man of the Match display against England.

The 20-year-old Chelsea midfielder won the award on his first Scotland start as he controlled the centre of the park at Wembley. The 0-0 draw with England means a Scotland win over Croatia on Tuesday would likely secure Scotland’s spot in the last 16 of Euro 2020.

Vieira – a legendary midfielder known for his time at Arsenal – says Gilmour has a big future with Chelsea and Scotland (ITV): “I think he had a terrific game. I really love his technical ability. He loves to get on the ball. He isn’t physical or really strong, but his personality allows him to get on the ball and make the game from the back.

 

“His teammates are not scared to give him the ball because they know how good he is on the ball. I think he has a really good future ahead of him.”
