Jack Hendry was one of the fall guys for Scotland’s European Championship defeat from the Czech Republic at Hampden.

With Kieran Tierney out injured the Celtic/Oostende defender was joined by Liam Cooper and Grant Hanley in the centre of a three man defence.

Early in the second half, with memories of his goal against Holland still fresh, Hendry almost equalised when a 20 yard effort bounced off the crossbar.

Within five minutes the roof had fallen in on Scotland, and Hendry.

When his next shot was blocked the ball was quickly played to Patrik Schick who executed the most perfect 49.7 yards shot to send the ball just under the crossbar with David Marshall left tangled in the net.

There were three obvious issues that occupied the watching millions. Schick’s effort was a wonder goal, Marshall was too far out of his goalmouth and Hendry’s decision to shoot was at best questionable.

The debate about the goal will run late into the night and beyond but the bottom line is that Scotland are pointless ahead of playing two of the semi-finalists from the 2018 World Cup Finals.
