Spain Suffers Defeat to Scotland Due to Porro’s Nightmare Start
Spain suffered a shocking defeat to Scotland, with Tottenham star Pedro Porro having a nightmare start to the game. Porro was at fault for the opening goal, which led to Scotland taking the lead against the three-time European champions at Hampden Park. His costly slip allowed Scott McTominay to score, leaving fans in awe of his superb performance. McTominay had already netted twice in their 3-0 win against Cyprus on Saturday, and he continued his scoring form just three days later, with Scotland beginning to look comfortable in their group.
Porro’s Woes Continue
Porro’s woes continued as he went down in a heap after a collision with Liverpool star Andy Robertson. Replays show that Robertson made an effort to barge into Porro with his right shoulder, leaving him in a heap and causing outrage among the home fans. A red card check was conducted by VAR, but Robertson was handed just a yellow for his troubles. After a few minutes of treatment, Porro made his way back up and almost equalised only for his long-range effort to be tipped over the crossbar by Scotland goalkeeper Angus Gunn.
McTominay Doubles Scotland’s Lead
Things didn’t get any better for Porro and Spain in the second half as McTominay doubled Scotland’s lead with a well-taken volley with his left foot. This sealed Scotland’s first win over Spain in 39 years.
