Pre-Match thoughts

Head Coach Scot Gemmill praised his players for their performance against San Marino. 

The manager admitted post-match that it could have been more than the 2-0 scoreline, but highlighted his players ability to break down stubborn opposition.

The foundations of the clean sheet is a component Gemmill hopes his team can take in to Tuesday's game against Croatia. 

He said: "We were really pleased tactically against San Marino. When you play a team from Pot Six you really have to make it happen and break them down, and the players showed that they had the intelligence to do that."

Looking ahead to the second game of the group, he added: "Coming to Croatia, we know we are going to be playing one of the best young teams in Europe, a country with a big history in producing very good young footballers.

"It's a brilliant opportunity for the players to carry on their development. It's something they don't get at club level and it's brilliant that we can bring them here and give them this experience."
