Calvin Miller: Celebrates scoring winner

Celtic's Miller was the architect with a dazzling goalscoring performance for Scott Booth's Under-16 side.

Miller's Hoops colleague Theo Archibald was another constant thorn in the England rearguard, while visiting captain, Manchester City's Cameron Humphreys, caused a myriad of problems all night.

Scotland goalkeeper Robby McRorie had watched anxiously after dropping a regulation catch before Chris Willock stabbed into his side-netting.

And Miller soon put the hosts in front after capitalising on a communication breakdown between keeper Alfie Whiteman and captain Humphreys, to collect the loose ball and stroke home.

Miller had a glorious chance to double Scotland's lead before half-time but this time Whiteman tipped the ball around the upright.

And in a nervy second half, Ross McCrorie almost ended the contest for Kenny Swain's England when rising highest from a corner only to watch his header cannon off the crossbar and away to safety.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
