Andrew Robertson has come a long way in a really short time. From playing for Dundee United 5 years ago, the Scottish left-back has had quite a journey, first getting the opportunity to feature in the Premier League for Hull City, to now being one of the first names on the team sheet for European giants Liverpool.
The 24-year-old was made Captain of his national side earlier this month, thanks to his performances over the last couple of years. The dynamic full-back has gained rave reviews for his attacking attributes, namely his ability to beat players on one-on-one situations and the quality of his deliveries.
Robertson was at it again last night as Scotland took on Albania in the UEFA Nations League at Hampden Park. The Scots ended up winning the game 2-0, although they should have won by a much bigger margin given the balance of play.
The Liverpool left-back provided the initial breakthrough for the home team, after his inch-perfect first time cross picked out Naismith whose header found the back of the net courtesy of a heavy deflection from Albanian defender Berat Djimsiti.

If Robertson continues this form, there is no question that he will be talked about in the same breath as some of the world’s best full-backs in years to come. Liverpool fans will be hoping Robertson carries his form into the crucial clash against Spurs at Wembley this Saturday.
