Scotland miss out on promotion after defeat in Israel

Manor Solomon (left) struck the winner on the cusp of half-time

Scotland failed to add Nations League promotion to their momentous Euro 2020 qualification as they slipped to a limp defeat in Israel.

Matching the Czech Republic’s result at home to Slovakia would have elevated Steve Clarke’s men to League A.

But the Scots could not reach the level of their Euro play-off win over Serbia six days previously as Manor Solomon’s thudding strike condemned them to a second successive Group B2 loss.

The Czechs’ 2-0 win secured top spot.

Having followed qualification for their first finals in 23 years by losing in Slovakia to shatter their nine-game unbeaten run, Clarke’s team ended an historic week on a low in Netanya.

The potential World Cup play-off for Nations League group winners slipped through Scotland’s grasp as Israel exacted revenge for last month’s Euro play-off semi-final loss.
