Netherlands 4-0 Scotland: What did the manager say?

Scotland head coach Steve Clarke: “It’s a strange one. Obviously sore, losing 4-0 you can’t really dress it up, it was painful.

“For 70 minutes it was really good then we concede a poor second goal. The biggest difference between the sides was clinical finishing. We created a lot against a good side.

“It is one to go away and digest but not get too emotional. The lads are disappointed with the way the game turned out, I am disappointed with the way the game turned out.

“There are plenty of positives but straight after the game you tend to forget about the positives. The scoreline is sore. We allowed the game to become too open, it suited the Netherlands more than it suited us and we paid for it.

“Lawrence can be pleased with his contribution. He’s a striker he wants to score goals. He only had one big chance in the game and normally you’d expect Lawrence to score it but there will be another day.

“I have got to clear my head. I had an idea in mind what I might do on Tuesday night but the game tonight might have just changed that.”
