Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is hopeful that Che Adams’ first Scotland goal can be the springboard to consistent Premier League form.
The Southampton striker netted his first Scotland effort last month on his maiden international camp ahead of Euro 2020 this summer. It was a brilliant strike, thumping a shot from 20 yards into the net during a 4-0 win over Faroe Islands.
He was given a Southampton rest last weekend against Burnley but Hasenhuttl believes his Scotland moment may contribute to more Premier League goals (Hampshire Live): “This is not so bad, yeah. You come back from the international breaks and everybody is congratulatory.
“You show this self-confidence afterwards. Also, in the sessions immediately you are in very good shape then, feel comfortable. But then very quickly you have to switch the button and know you have to compete here for your team also.
“I think the guy knows this and what I like is he is coming back and immediately wants to concentrate on the club and is not leaning back. Che McAdams is back and he is definitely not speaking differently.
“It was good for him to score for Scotland for the first time. I saw the game and he did a good job. Also, they have a good chance to go maybe to the World Cup so it was a good first step for him.”
