Scotland head coach Steve Clarke declared himself content with a good week’s work after seeing his side beat Faroe Islands 4-0 at Hampden.

John McGinn scored twice, Che Adams got off the mark in a Scotland jersey, and Ryan Fraser was on the scoresheet as the team built on draws against Austria and Israel with a home win and a clean sheet.

The result gave Scotland five points from their opening three fixtures in World Cup qualifying group F.

“I think it’s been a good ten days work,” Clarke said.

“Tonight was good. We knew we had to finish with a victory, and to finish with a comfortable victory.

“Four goals for a team that can’t score goals is a good, comfortable victory.

“We’ve finished the first World Cup camp with five points and second place in the group. We’ll look forward to the September games.”

Che Adams was delighted to have found the net in his third international and said it was important to get an early goal in Scotland colours.

“Getting the first goal is the hardest,” he said. “Thankfully it went in tonight and we got the three points.

“We’ll take each game as it comes but it’s definitely positive.

“We’ve not lost and it’s down to the hard work of the group. It gives us a fighting chance.”
