Maloney's unstoppable strike in the first half, eventually list an own goal, was enough to sink a defiant Georgia. The visitors put up a stiff defense, moving the ball about with promise, but failing to test Marshall by registering anything on goal. Scotland looked good for value but failed to connect and net many chances. Their movement forward has not been a problem, as also shown in their September fixture against the now beaten Germans (more on that at another time). The win was much needed for their campaign, keeping them in reach of Poland and Ireland, two teams they want to be in touch with knowing Germany's rise to the top of the pile is almost an inevitability. Overall, Scotland can be pleased with their performance but will need to make sure to finish their chances. They will still need to beat Poland and Ireland, possibly shooting for 8 points from those 12. If they can snag a point against Germany in the return fixture they will certainly boost their chances, but beating Poland and Ireland should be the task at hand for now.
