Calvin Miller: Celebrates scoring winner

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.

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
