Kieran Tierney targeted by ‘lazy’ defense after Scotland defeat

Arsenal's Kieran Tierney targeted by 'lazy' defense after Scotland's defeat

Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney has come under fire after Scotland’s loss to Denmark this week.

Today cruise

Steve Clarke’s men began their final round of matches on Wednesday night.

The Tartan Army made the trip to Copenhagen, for a World Cup qualifying showdown with Denmark.

Scotland was understandably seen as a favorite heading into the proceedings, with the Danes, of course, fresh from an impressive run to the semi-finals of Euro 2020.

Yet few likely predicted how comfortable an overnight job awaited Kasper Hjulmand’s men.

In a dominant 90 minutes, in which they boasted 62% possession, Denmark finally emerged on the right side from a 2-0 scoreline, courtesy of goals from Daniel Wass and Joakim Maehle.

Denmark, in turn, have kept the nation’s flawless start alive in their World Cup qualifying campaign, with a perfect 12 points out of 12.

Scotland, on the other hand, now have everything to do, ranking fourth in the Group F table behind Israel and Austria.

And, as described above, the investigation into Steve Clarke’s men’s struggles is already underway.

Several members of the Tartan Army squad were selected to receive deserved criticism for their exploits Wednesday night, and one of them came under particularly intense scrutiny: Kieran Tierney.

Arsenal goalkeeper Tierney is off to a less than ideal start to the new campaign, with his disappointing performances largely in line with those of the Gunners as a whole.

And fellow Scotsman Kris Boyd is evidently of the opinion that such problems have carried over to the international stage, and the former Rangers hit man has not been shy about highlighting Scotland’s left flank as a problem area in the later part of the encounter. of the nation with Denmark:

Obviously, it is an area that Denmark has analyzed. Even if it was Kieran Tierney or Andy Robertson there. It is an area that they have seen as a weakness and it must be said that they have exploited it very, very well. ‘

Tierney was largely identified as the culprit of the Danes’ first game, and Boyd, in turn, continued:

“I think it’s lazy to defend Kieran Tierney, and it’s not like him because he’s usually a good defender.”

But maybe because it is in all three and is a little more involved. When you see the goal, he (Tierney) really looks at it (Wass), but I’m not sure why he comes on the field, runs inside and it’s a fantastic finish. ”
