Palmer earns fifth Scotland cap

20 November 2019

Liam Palmer earned his fifth senior cap for Scotland on Tuesday evening at Hampden Park.

The Wednesday full back enjoyed another 90-minute outing for the Scots in their final group game against Kazakhstan.

Scotland’s 3-1 win in Glasgow concluded their Group I fixture list.

Having finished in third spot behind Belgium and Russia, Scotland will now prepare for the play-offs in March but do so in confident fashion after three wins on the bounce.

Scotland’s last three games have seen them pick up impressive victories over San Marino (6-0), Cyprus (1-2) and Kazakhstan (3-1), with Palmer playing the full 90 minutes on each occasion.

Kazakhstan went ahead in the first half at Hampden Park on Tuesday before the Scots drew level shortly after the break through John McGinn.

 

Palmer had a big hand in Scotland’s second goal, making a run into the box before sending in the cross which was deflected and nodded home by Steven Naismith. McGinn made sure of the win and scored his second goal of the game in stoppage time.
