Watch Scotland's great goal to beat Ireland

New, comment

Scotland beat Ireland, 1-0, in a very important Euro qualifier. And their goal was phenomenal.

If you close your eyes and imagine an important match between Scotland and Ireland (and yes, that too usually requires dreaming), you think of a lot of guys running into each other, elbows, pouring rain and gruesome injury that a player plays through.

You do not think of a five-touch play on a short corner that includes a perfect back heel and a first touch curled finish right in the side netting.

You do not think of this,

This is too good.

This was real.

Love you, Scotland.
