Andrew Robertson won his first match as Scotland captain tonight, helping his country defeat Albania 2-0.
The 24-year-old also registered a trademark left-foot assist for Steven Naismith’s goal, too.

In his past nine Premier League games for Liverpool, Robbo’s got five assists, including crucial ones this season v West Ham and Leicester City.
The Scot is solid defensively but really quite prolific going forward in terms of his end product.
Benjamin Mendy has been lauded for his offensive outlet this term, but we wouldn’t swap Robertson for any left-back in the top flight.
He’ll start the game at Spurs on Saturday, and have some job on his hands, as Kieran Trippier bombs forward and has an exceptional delivery himself.
However, if Robertson can link with Naby Keita and Sadio Mane down his flank, we could cause Mauricio Pochettino’s side no end of problems.
