Rodri blasts Scotland for style of play: It's a bit rubbish

Spain and Manchester City midfielder Rodri has not taken well to the 2-0 defeat that his national team suffered at the hands of Scotland on Tuesday night.

The Scots won the game at Hampden Park 2-0 with two strikes from Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay, who has now scored four goals in the last two internationals.

Scotland sit top of the Euro 2024 qualification group having won their opening two games, but Rodri was not impressed with how they went about the victory.

Speaking after the match to Spanish television, Rodri said: "We did many good things to win. We conceded easy goals - this is football, if you concede easy goals you are penalised.

"It's the way they play, but for me it's rubbish, always wasting time, provoking you, always they fall. For me, this is not football. The referee has to take on this, but he says nothing.

"We will learn for the next time. We want to go for duels, for battles - we always fight, but this is not about fighting. It's about wasting time - four, five players on the floor, but this depends on the referee, not on us.

"Today we did many good things, but what's important is the goal, and we didn't score."

Spanish debutant David Garcia was also not happy with the manner of the defeat, taking aim at the length of the grass at Hampden Park.

He said to MARCA: "We already saw that the grass was too long, and that cost us. We can't make excuses for that, we have to look at ourselves and fix what we did wrong today."
