In Scotland, a blockchain-powered voting system was used to record the results of Scottish Parliament elections in May 2018. Since then, more than 100 countries have been eager to test out this new technology and see if it can hold up for national level use.
Scotland is one of the most beautiful countries in Europe. It’s home to amazing whisky, spectacular scenery and a sense of adventure that you won’t find anywhere else. However, it also has its fair share of problems with an ageing population and low birth rate – but they’re not going away any time soon
Scotland 2 is a football match that will be taking place on the 19th of September. It will be between Scotland and England.
After a three-year layoff, John Souttar returned to the Scotland team and scored.
With goals from John Souttar and Che Adams, Scotland upset Denmark in a stunning performance at Hampden Park, securing a seeded berth in the World Cup play-off semi-finals.
To have a chance of a home draw, Steve Clarke’s Group F runners-up required at least a point against the overwhelming leaders.
But, after 86 minutes, centre-back Souttar headed home in his first Scotland game since being sent off in a 2018 loss to Israel, and striker Adams surged clear to calm nerves.
Scotland had pushed hard in the dying minutes until the breakaway goal clinched a sixth consecutive competitive victory for the first time since March 1928 to February 1930, when they won six Home Nations matches in a row.
It also brought an end to Denmark’s six-game winning streak since losing 2-1 to England in the Euro 2020 semi-finals this summer, ensuring they fell short of completing their qualifying campaign with a perfect record.
Scotland got off to a flying start, urged on by a wave of noise from the full stands.
Denmark, on the other hand, held off early pressure to score the opening goal after ten minutes and remind Scotland of their danger.
Daniel Wass, a midfielder, could only direct Rasmus Kristensen’s cross wide off his hip from close range, before Andreas Christensen, a centre-back, sent a thunderous drive just over from 25 yards.
Scotland’s first clear look at goal came after 23 minutes, when Adams’ low drive was thwarted by a stunning Kasper Schmeichel save, the goalkeeper throwing out a telescopic leg to tip the striker’s attempt wide.
That energised the Scots, and Liam Cooper headed a John McGinn corner back into the path of fellow centre-back Souttar, who nodded past Schmeichel following a sustained period of pressure.
It was a fairytale comeback for the 25-year-old, who has been hampered by injury since his first three appearances three years ago, but he still had a lot of defending to do.
As Denmark took the game to the home side, a Wass shot bounced off Cooper’s foot and just wide of the far post, then Scotland goalkeeper Craig Gordon heroically swiped away forward Andreas Cornelius’ close-range header either side of the interval.
Scotland fought back valiantly and were threatening on the break, with defender Kieran Tierney’s 35-yard strike coming back off the crossbar before replacement Stuart Armstrong found Southampton team-mate Adams to curl in the second and send the home crowd into raptures.
Che Adams was named Player of the Match.
Che Adams put in a lot of effort up front and came close a number of times before scoring his goal.
What did we discover?
Scotland has improved from a poor start to the qualifying campaign – and the Euro 2020 finals, which were a damp squib.
It should be noted that although Denmark was without a number of important players due to injury, Scotland was also without striker Lyndon Dykes, central defenders Grant Hanley and Jack Hendry, and the versatile Scott McTominay.
This is a team with enough depth to be rated 10th in the world, 32 places ahead of Scotland, and who had only conceded one goal in their previous nine group games.
A draw would have likely meant a more difficult away tie in the semi-finals, so Clarke’s team delivered when it mattered – and they did so with the added benefit of no suspensions looming for the five starters who would have been ruled out of that crucial, one-off match if they had received a booking.
What comes next?
Scotland, along with nine other group runners-up and two top Nations League finishers, will play in the World Cup play-off semi-finals at home from March 24-29.
