Fighting Words From Scotland's Che Adams Ahead Of Ireland Showdown

Fighting Words From Scotland's Che Adams Ahead Of Ireland Showdown
By Colman Stanley

Southampton and Scotland forward, Che Adams, has spoken confidently of his side's chances ahead of their Nations League clash with Ireland on Saturday.

The two sides previously met in June, with Ireland running out as comfortable 3-0 victors on the day, and the result sparked widespread abuse on social for Scotland manager Steve Clarke and his players. However, yesterday's 3-0 victory over Ukraine has instilled a new found confidence in the side.

“I think we owe them [Ireland] one now from what happened in the summer,” Che Adams said. "We will be full of confidence now and looking forward to it. We all know what we are capable of doing and we have shown that to everyone, especially Ireland.

“It’s just going to give us more confidence now going into the next game. Everyone knows what we can do now. We played so well and it’s just about building momentum. Everyone believes what we are capable of doing. We showed so much belief."

“The result [against Ukraine] motivates us even more," continued Adams. "The performance was definitely up there with one of the best. It knocked us back in the summer but it motivated us more to top the group.”

Ireland face Scotland on Saturday in Hampden Park, with kick-off at 19:45. Scotland currently sit atop of their Nations League B Group 1, while Ireland lie in third place, five points behind the Scots.
