Andy Murray went WILD celebrating Scotland’s qualification for the Euros last night

Absolute scenes in the Murray household as Scotland reached their first final in 22 years –

Yes, the title and the image above were a bit tongue in cheek but this is the most Andy Murray video we have come across and it needed proper introduction.

Scotland qualify for the European Championships next summer

Led by Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson, Scotland won the penalty shootout against a high-quality Serbia side at the Red Star Stadium last night.

The win marked a special occasion in Scottish football’s history with Steve Clarke’s side qualifying for a major championship for the first time in more than 20 years.

You couldn’t have imagined a manner fitting for Scotland to achieve the qualification as they could have won the match in regular time.

The away side were brilliant throughout and kept the fearsome Serbian attack (consisting of Aleksandar Mitrovic, Dusan Tadic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic) at bay.

But it wasn’t to be as Real Madrid star Luka Jovic canceled out Ryan Christie’s goal when he found the back of the net in the 90th minute of the game.

Extra time went by with no real action and the match had to be decided by a penalty shoot-out.

All 9 players scored before Mitrovic’s shot was saved by David Marshall as the Scotland contingent broke into rapturous celebrations.
