Scotland are in”very cheap” after their initial two Euro 2020 qualifying games, says captain Andy Robertson.
However, the Liverpool leftback is calling on the squad to”stick together” in a bid to recover from their sticky start.
“The only real way we accomplish that is by winning games and playing a lot better,” said 25-year-old Robertson.
“The nation reaches very cheap only now in terms of football and we need to select up it “
And Scotland’s operation in San Marino did nothing to lessen the pressure on the manager before a June double-header at home to Cyprus and away to group leaders Belgium.
Robertson, who missed the opening qualifier because of dental surgery but came back to skipper the team on Sunday, admitted the San Marino game was”all about damage limitation”.
“once you get beaten in a game you were designed to win, and people say it’s the most peculiar result we’ve ever needed, and this week was going to be a success,” he said.
“But we followed it up rather than really a good performance again. The lads need to stick together”
‘Can’t look at this match in isolation’ – investigation
Andy Robertson himself says the nation is in rock bottom football-wise. The supporters are fully aware of this. They believe it. You can not consider this game in isolation. You have to think about the fact that under the previous manager in the previous six competitive games he was undefeated in 20 17.
If you look in Thursday night, then it was shambolic. And Sunday’s operation wasn’t much better. The sole difference was we were playing against a team that has been officially the worst on the planet. Therefore things aren’t fantastic.
