Video: Ex Chelsea star Yuri Zhirkov caps fantastic move to put Russia 2-1 up vs Scotland

New manager, same old problems for Scotland. The lack of decent defenders and someone to play up front means they will always struggle against better sides, and Russia have looked good at Hampden tonight.

They took the lead through a familiar name to Premier League fans. Yuri Zhirkov got himself on the end of a fantastic passing move to put the Russians 2-1 up.

There might be some suggestions that it was an own goal but Zhirkov will certainly be claiming it:

It’s a great move for the goal but Scotland’s full-backs have been at fault for both of the goals.

Zhirkov played 49 games in total for Chelsea and was a useful member of the squad playing in any position on the left hand side.
