It was brilliant for him to net his first international goal – but now Southampton striker Che Adams is thinking forward to Euro 2020 this summer.

The Southampton star netted for the first time in Scotland colours with a thunderous 20-yard strike as Scotland beat Faroe Islands 4-0 on Wednesday, meaning it’s five points from nine in the opening World Cup 2022 qualification matches.

Scotland’s Euro 2020 campaign is now the focus for the Southampton man (Sky Sports):”It was a great feeling to see it hit the back of the net and we got the three points, which is all that matters. I have been playing with Lyndon Dykes up top but it just fell right for me. Thankfully it went in.

“I have been in that position many times at club level. You just want to get off the mark, get that first goal and getting the confidence. It’s been a very positive week but it isn’t ideal as we could have taken more points.

“We haven’t taken a loss so it’s just about positivity now. The lads have dug in well in some games, we got the three points against Faroe Islands. It’s only positive, we look forward to the summer and what that brings. I need to get the club level right and the rest will take care of itself.”
