Steve Clarke felt it was important Scotland enjoyed their moment in front of a packed Hampden Park against Israel on Saturday, but he has now shifted their attention to Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier with the Faroe Islands (Match Result – Faroe Islands 11/1, Draw 9/2, Scotland 2/7).

Scotland took a giant step towards securing a playoff place for next year’s World Cup in Qatar after Scott McTominay’s stoppage-time goal handed them a dramatic 3-2 victory over Israel on Saturday, a result that has consolidated their second-place standing in Group F.

Saturday’s match was also the first time Scotland had played in front of a capacity crowd on home soil for almost two years and Clarke believes it was important his squad savoured the result and occasion, although their focus is now very much on the upcoming trip to the Faroes.

“It was important the other night, not to milk it, that’s not the right phrase, but for the public and the players to have that little moment after the game,” Clarke told reporters.

“It was good for the confidence, good for the belief and good for them to feel loved. Footballers are no different from anyone else, we all like to feel the love.

“It was a good moment but one we have to park now and get ready for the next tough challenge.”

Scotland will further consolidate their playoff place if they secure a victory in Torshavn against a Faroes side ranked 114th in the world, but Clarke knows that anything can happen in international football and his players must be aware of the pitfalls.

“I’ve got little spies walking around the camp, people listening to players and their conversations,” he added.

“The more senior ones who recognise the dangers and the pitfalls of these games telling the younger ones what it’s going to be like over there and how difficult it’s going to be.

“Everyone around the camp is just trying to get the mood right.”

Scotland will be without Southampton forward Che Adams on Tuesday due to the leg injury that forced him off against Israel, with Ryan Christie (6/4 anytime scorer), the man who replaced him on Saturday, or Kevin Nisbet (6/5 anytime scorer) likely to take his place in the starting XI.
