Best Twitter reactions to Scotland's humiliating Kazakhstan loss

Embarrassing Loss

Scottish football hit a new low on Thursday evening, as the national side suffered what was one of the most embarrassing results in the history of the team away to Kazakhstan.

Facing the minnows that in their last qualifying campaign scored just six goals, Scotland managed to concede three in one game as they fell to a 3-0 defeat at the Astana Arena, falling two goals down inside the first 10 minutes.

The third came shortly after half-time as Kazakhstan, lead by new coach Michal Bilek, pulled home and dry with 40 minutes of the match still to play, which proved to be an agonising watch for the Scotland fans that stuck with it.

Huge questions are already being asked of manager Alex McLeish, and while this may not be the most talented Scotland side there has ever been, there is more than enough for him to work with to beat Kazakhstan. The likes of John McGinn, Callum McGregor, Stuart Armstrong, Oliver Burke and James Forrest are all far too good to be part of a team that loses to Kazakhstan.

It leaves the Scots in a tough spot, with the team enjoying a solid campaign in the Nations League last time out that saw them qualify for the play-offs after finishing top of a group also featuring Albania and Israel.

Scotland fans

This loss leaves Scotland’s chances of finishing in the top two of their 2020 European Championship group in serious doubt, also being joined by Belgium, Russia, Cyprus and San Marino. They will expect both Belgium and Russia to take six points from Kazakhstan, already leaving McLeish’s team fighting an uphill battle from the start.

They face San Marino on Sunday in a game they surely can’t manage to drop points in and will need to bag plenty of goals to also catch up with their -3 goal difference.

After the defeat, McLeish was asked by the press about his future with the team and remained coy: "I will just continue to do my job. Suffice to say I'm not going to get drawn into that question.

"I don't really rank defeats. I just feel in terms of losing I have to bounce back. I always feel low after a game but as I've said I'm pretty good at bouncing back.

"We bounced back from a poor performance in Israel and that's what we must do after this game. It's never finished until it's finished.

"We have other players to come back, players with more experience who have to come back to the Scotland squad. Obviously we need to have as strong a squad as we can if we're going to be strong in qualification."

It's not a shock to say that Scotland fans were left furious with the result and took to Twitter to express their feelings, the best of which can be found below.
