Scott McTominay withdrawn from Scotland squad through injury

by Leo Nieboer

Scott McTominay has been withdrawn from the Scotland squad to face Hungary after picking up an injury whilst on international duty.

The 21-year-old, who chose to represent Scotland over England earlier this month, was rewarded with a place in Alex McLeish’s squad for friendlies against Costa Rica and Hungary.

He was thrown straight into the starting lineup at Hampden Park on Friday night and produced a solid midfield display in a 1-0 defeat.

But Manchester United have confirmed that McTominay, ahead of his side’s visit to Hungary, has picked up an injury.

It wouldn’t be an international break if none of your players – especially those in superb form and growing in confidence with each game – suffered an injury, would it?

The exact severity of the knock is yet to be established, and supporters will just hope this isn’t a case similar to that of Marouane Fellaini back in October, where an excellent month for the Belgian was cut short by a knee injury from which he is yet to fully recover.

On the flip-side, McTominay’s injury, coupled with Fellaini’s continued problems, will give Paul Pogba – left out of the starting XI for France on Friday – a valuable chance to reassert himself on Mourinho’s lineup.
