Scotland 6-0 San Marino: John McGinn nets hat-trick in Euro 2020 qualifier

Scotland v San Marino
John McGinn’s three goals came in the space of 34 minutes

John McGinn scored his first career hat-trick as Scotland ended a run of four defeats with a straightforward win over San Marino at a sodden Hampden.

McGinn, 24, became the first Scotland player to net a first-half treble since Lawrie Reilly in 1952 before Lawrence Shankland and Stuart Findlay both scored their debut Scotland goals on their first starts.

Stuart Armstrong’s free-kick added a late sixth as the pressure on head coach Steve Clarke was eased following Thursday’s 4-0 defeat by Russia.
