Young Scots’ late show falls short in Tbilisi
Scotland’s attempt at a late comeback fell short as they were beaten 2-1 by Georgia in their European under-21 championship qualifier in Tbilisi yesterday.
Goals by Valeri Kazaishvili and Jambul Jigauri put Georgia in command and they looked like strengthening their grip on the game when they were awarded a 79th-minute penalty. But Scots keeper Jordan Archer (Tottenham) saved from Giorgi Chanturia.
Rangers midfielder Lewis MacLeod netted from long range two minutes later to give Billy Stark’s side hope. But the late pressure failed to produce another goal.
