Wednesday provided a memorable night for Southampton striker Che Adams as he netted his first ever goal for Scotland.

With James Ward-Prowse rested for England’s clash with Poland as a fitness precaution, all eyes were on “McAdams” and he duly delivered.

Adams struck the ball sweetly from range on 60 minutes to get Scotland’s third goal of a 4-0 victory over improving European footballing minnows, the Faroe Islands.

That victory gets Scotland off the mark in their attempts to qualify for their first World Cup since 1998, having drawn their opening games against Austria and Israel in Group F.

Saints midfielder Stuart Armstrong was an unused substitute for Scotland against the Faroe Islands on Wednesday night.

Speaking of unused substitutes, Saints centre back Jannik Vestergaard warmed the bench for his country Denmark on Wednesday night.

Denmark smashed Austria 4-0 away from home, with former Southampton captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, now of Tottenham Hotspur, scoring a goal and assisting another.

Vestergaard started in Denmark’s previous game on Sunday, playing the full 90 minutes his country’s 8-0 thrashing of Moldova.

Earlier in the week, Saints forward Takumi Minamino netted for Japan in their 0-14 thrashing of Mongolia on Monday.

On loan from Liverpool, Southampton fans will be hoping Minamino can find some goalscoring form to close out a fairly successful spell on the South Coast with the Saints.
