Levein bullish after Scotland draw with Macedonia


Bookmark and Share

Craig Levein believes Scotland can still qualify for the 2014 World Cup despite recording their second home draw in as many group games, this time ending level with Macedonia, the BBC has reported.



Scotland followed up the weekend’s goalless draw with Serbia by finding parity against Macedonia, having fallen behind early in the contest. Kenny Miller equalised just before half-time but the BBC adds it was the visitors who had the better chances to win the game after the break.


Levein made three changes to the side that drew with Serbia, dropping Charlie Adam, Robert Snodgrass and Steven Naismith and calling on Jamie Mackie, Shaun Maloney and James Forrest instead. Adam and Naismith were both introduced after the break while Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes was brought on shortly after the hour mark as well.


The manager said that while he was disappointed his side failed to win either of their opening two home games, there were so many points left to play for in the group that qualification was still a distinct possibility. He continued: “I look at the league table and we are two points off the top after two matches and there's 24 points left to play for. I am a touch disappointed, but I'm not in any way disheartened.
