Slovakia beats Scotland 3-0 to put more pressure on Gordon Strachan. The Scotland manager has come under intense pressure during the recent weeks with Scotland having a difficult campaign in the World Cup qualifiers.
This is the second match in a row where Scotland failed to take maximum points after their draw with Lithuania.
Slovakia started the match well and put Scotland under pressure from the kick-off. They will score the first goal through Robert Mak to take the lead. Scotland fans were hoping that the goal will spark their team to life but unfortunately, nothing happen and they will concede another goal.
Again Robert Mak will be their tormentor in chief when he managed to evade Russel Martin to score the second goal. This goal will be a major blow for Scotland as they will be unable to come back into the game.
Scotland will concede a third goal when Adam Nemec will score on a header that will give the Scotland keeper no chance.
The defeat leaves Scotland third in their group 3 points behind leader England putting their qualifications for the next World Cup in danger. Scotland has missed the previous two World Cups and will be hoping that they can make it this time, but so far there is little to suggest that the side will improve.
Ever since the defeat pressure has been mounting on the manager as many people feel that the team is no longer progressing under Strachan. There is still a lot to play for in the qualifying campaign, and some pundits believe that the only way out is to change manager.
Scotland will need someone that has good experience of international football and also someone that can motivate the team and organize them on the pitch. Indeed the goals conceded against Slovakia were mainly due to poor organization.
