David Marshall admits the chances of Scotland qualifying for Its 2020 European Union are”slim” after the 2-1 defeat by Russia in Hampden Park on Friday.

Steve Clarke’s side took the lead after only 10 minutes when midfielder John McGinn scored his first global goal but Russia scored either side of half-time to carry all 3 points.
While Russia are next with 12 points, three behind leaders Belgium who visit Hampden on Monday night, live on Sky Sports Football after just two wins at five fixtures, Scotland have been at fourth place in Group I with six points.
Even the Nations League semi-final play-off next March provides Scotland a different way into Euro 2020 however when asked about the chances of getting there from the conventional course, the 34-year-old Wigan goalkeeper stated:”It is obviously slender.
“We all know that, we’re sensible about it. Win and we must go Monday night and there is half of the campaign gone , we know that.
“It is a massive ask at this point but you feel much better in a few days after you receive a few days practice in and we will go again on Monday.
“There is a whole lot of football to be performed with. We will need to get our heads right. There’s still five matches to go from the group.
“We know how slim it is but we have to go and acquire a major game.
“We clearly understand Belgium really well. We will have a game program which may change because it has turned into a match win and we need to go today. I am certain that we’ll be ready.
“Football changes speedily. We arrived away it and were in the ascendancy. So we give it a try on Monday and will go.
“We all are aware of what the crowd is similar to here [at Hampden] when we begin and when we could get a start on Monday like we did against Russia ideally we can preserve it. But we’re under no illusions.”
Like the majority of the Scotland players, Marshall has been at a loss about how the home side failed to build in their early play and goal.
The former Celtic, Cardiff and Hull goalkeeper said:”It was a big game and we needed the points. They’re a team that is fantastic but I don’t think we played .
“It was only a disappointing outcome. Our game plan was to get after it and them worked really well.
“This was a perfect start for us however, the game simply seemed to alter. They got a lot of ownership and the goal before half-time was important to them”
