With a goal of Depa Netherlands beat Scotland`s retreat team
With Memphis Depy`s goal in the 40th minute, the Netherlands scored 1-0 over Scotland in a control match, both teams failing to qualify for the World Cup in Russia next year. The Scottish hosts were led by temporary coach Malki Makay, who staged a young and experimental squad at PitoDri. Makay, for whom it is clear that he has not been standing for Gordon Strachan`s post, has given three boys a chance to make a debut with the national jersey. These are midfielder Ryan Kristi and Calum MacGregor, as well as Glasgow Rangers right-handed Ryan Jack. Scottish Football Association Executive Director Stewart Regan said before the match that after finding a permanent coach, Mackey will return to his team-mate for national teams. Celtic`s 20-year-old Kieron Tierney was carrying the captain`s line-up in his 9th home game, and the youngsters were all very fond of the crowd with their hearty play.
The Dutch, who had the most control of the ball, won the match from dropping odds with his goal five minutes before the end of the first half after the counterattack. Ryan Babel fired and dropped a comfortable ball on the French Lyon-Memphis Depay, who did not make a mistake on the back. The Scot had two opportunities to catch up in the later stages of the game. First of all, the reserve Jason Cummings of a promising position was too weak, and Matt Phillips`s head shot did not find the target, although there were no rivals around him.
