Scotland’s Billy Gilmour displayed an impressive performance against England on Friday night and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by football managers Frank Lampard and Jose Mourinho.
The midfielder shone in the 0-0 draw which earned him man of the match plaudits on his first competitive start for Scotland and gave his team their first point of the Euros.
And new Roma boss Mourinho believes Billy Gilmour was the key to keeping England at bay in the group match.
He further said, “The kid Gilmour was the difference, he was always showing, he wanted the ball under the pressure. McGinn could be a bit higher and the two strikers worked so hard. The last action of the game is an example of their mentality.
“Steve Clarke organised the game tactically very well, but more importantly than that was the spirit.
“They didn’t come for a football match, it was clearly Steve and his staff’s job. They united the team and they were ready to fight.
Scotland will next play Croatia in a must-win game for the team after they lost their opener against the Czech Republic.
Gilmour himself has said holding England to a draw will give them the confidence to go and get the job done on Tuesday.
