4-6-0 Formation Shows Scotlands Lack Of Ambition

Scotland succumbed to their first Euro 2012 defeat 1-0 as a second half Czech Republic goal from Roman Hubnik finally broke the dogged Scottish resistance. Still it was no more than the Czechs deserved and for football fans (especially Scottish ones) everywhere lets hope this puts an end to these defensive away formations. Craig Levein who to be fair is hardly endowed with players to draw his team from made no apology for the fact he gambled on playing without a striker in an all out attempt not to lose their Euro 2012 Group I qualifier, stating he had decided on a system, which nearly worked.

However most Scotland fans will not be happy with such a sterile performance and it will not have pleased in form striker Kenny Miller who was left on the bench until the 76th minute, leaving him no chance to make an impression.

Scotland entertain Spain on Tuesday and if the whispers are true regarding their intention to play the same tactics there will be plenty of spaces in the stadium.
