The ensuing uprising… This time Scotland beat Spain.
Upset continues in the 2024 European Football Championship (Euro 2024) qualifiers. Kazakhstan, ranked 115th in the FIFA rankings, beat Denmark at 18th, followed by Scotland at 42nd, and Spain at 10th.
Scotland won 2-0 thanks to Scott McTominay’s multi-goal in the home game against Spain in the second leg of Euro 2024 Group A held at Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland on the 29th (Korean time).
Scots, who had been inferior to Spain with 3 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in the past A match record, won 3-1 on November 15, 1984 in FIFA Mexico World Cup European qualifiers, leaving a record of winning in 38 years.

Scotland, along with Spain and Norway in Group A, are competing for tickets to the Euro 2024 finals, which are given only to the top two teams. Scotland had to beat Spain to finish in the top two.
The match was surprisingly easy. Scotland’s chance came when Pedro Poro fell near the penalty area. Andrew Robertson, who did not miss this, caught the ball and passed it to McTominay in the middle of the penalty area. Scotland’s ace McTominay, who scored multiple goals in a 3-0 win over Cyprus, scored a goal in the 7th minute of the first half.
In the 27th minute of the first half, Joselu’s shot hit the post and launched a counterattack, but it was difficult for Scotland to open the goal even after leading the ball in possession.
After the first half ended 1-0, McTominay’s feet shone again in the 6th minute of the second half. Kieran Tierney took the ball from the Scottish side and took the opportunity by breaking through the left side. Tierney’s cross hit David Garcia’s knee, but McTominay opened the goal again with a shot from the spilled ball. McTominay scored two goals in two consecutive games.
In the 12th minute of the second half, John McGinn’s shot hit the post and missed a chance to run away 3-0, but Scotland blocked Spain’s offensive despite being pushed back 25-75 in possession. Spain substituted Dani Carvajal and Nico Williams at the start of the second half, followed by Iago Aspas, Borya Iglesias, and Gaby in the middle of the second half to launch an all-out offensive, but failed to score.
