FIFA World Cup

Arsenal star guides his team to 1-0 away win in their Group F FIFA World Cup qualifiers

Arsenal football club of England defender, Kieran Tierney was in action on Tuesday night for Scotland in their 8th game of the Group F FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Faroe Islands at the Torsvoellur Stadium.

The former Celtic star retained his spot in his team's starting XI following his incredible performance for the team in their previous game having established himself as a key figure in the squad paraded by Steve Clarke.

Kieran Tierney was solid at the back in the whole 90 minutes duration of the game as he started alongside Grant Hanley and Jack Hendry in the three-man defence line and they were all able to impress.

The first half of the game was such a balanced one between the two sides with nothing separating them going into the half time break which ended goalless draw.

The tempo of the game got heated up in the second half as they both displayed some physical, tactical and technical skills but none was able to break the deadlock until the 86th minute when Lyndon Dyke gave his side the lead to make it one nil.

After several attempts from both ends to add more to the tally of the night, all were not successful as it ended one nil at full time.

The win of the night has now taken Scotland to the second spot on the table with 17 points in 8 games played and as such be hoping to keep the winning streaks going in their next fixture, so as to continue their pursuit in the campaign.
