Haggis people slay Croats

Scotland defeated a higher ranked opponent through an opportunistic Robert Snodgrass goal on Friday evening in Croatia. A penatrating run from Shaun Maloney led to an attempted clearance falling perfectly into the unmarked Norwich winger’s path. Strachan’s men held on to the end securing all three points in a country that rarely loses on home soil. The travelling Tartan Army looked delighted in the stands and the manager can add yet another famous win to an impressive managerial career including winning three league titles in a row with Celtic. The former Aberdeen player also unforgettably guided the Parkhead club into the knock-out stages of the Champions League on a relative shoe-string budget defeating Manchester United along the way via a perfect Shunsuke Nakamura free-kick.

Jose Mourinho is officially the new manager of Chelsea replacing his old rival Rafa Benitez. Fans can look forward to his new side playing Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich in the Super Cup and a very real chance of securing the Premiership title. It will be fascinating to see how frequently favourites such as John Terry and Frank Lampard feature and how he fares domestically versus his old staff in Andre Villas-Boas, Brendan Rodgers and Steve Clarke.
