Scotland beat Israel to earn promotion

A night to remember!

A hat-trick by in-form midfielder James Forrest earned Scotland a 3-2 home win over Israel in the Nations League and promotion to the competition's second tier.

Brighton midfielder Beram Kayal stunned Hampden with a sensational long range effort early on, but in a frantic first half Forrest equalised with a thumping low finish, before finishing off a superb team move just before half-time.

Forrest completed his hat-trick after 63 minutes with a tidy finish from Ryan Fraser's cutback, but Eran Zahavi ensured a nervous finish when he pulled a goal back with 15 minutes left. In a nerve-shredding finale, Allan McGregor produced an outstanding save to deny substitute Tomer Hemed to seal Scotland's win.

The result, which also sealed Scotland's Euro 2020 playoff berth if they fail to qualify automatically, left them top of Group 1 in League C on nine points from four games, three ahead of Israel and six in front of Albania.
Alex McLeish: "We were written off and we came through it against adversity. That is an amazing part of your character when you can do that. It's great to get the light at the end of the tunnel. James is in phenomenal form. His finishing was unerring. Incredible. I was waiting on them going past the post but to see them nestle inside was brilliant finishing,"
