Scotland took a huge step to finishing second in their World Cup Qualifying group as they beat Faroe Islands 1-0 thanks to a late Lyndon Dykes goal.
The QPR striker has become an important figure for the Scots since he made his debut last year, originally helping them to Euro 2020. Now, the focus is on reaching Qatar, and successive wins in this international break means Steve Clarke’s men need just one win from their final two games to guarantee a play-off spot.
Having scored the equaliser against Israel last time out, Dykes made a decisive contribution again, as he got the winner.
Whilst there was an element of fortune to the goal, as it hit the former Livingston man and went in, Dykes had to be in the right place. Plus, it continued the trend of the 26-year-old delivering when Scotland needed him too as he has now scored in four straight games.
Did these 20 things happen to QPR in 2020?
As you would expect, R’s fans were delighted for the striker and here we look at some of the reaction to the player from Twitter…
Another couple million on the price tag https://t.co/OJVArVh1IC
