Andy Robertson fed up with basic Scotland errors

Andy Robertson bemoaned a lack of concentration and some rookie defending as Scotland lost 4-0 to Belgium at Hampden Park.

Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne was in sparkling form, scoring once and carving out three assists for Romelu Lukaku, Thomas Vermaelen and Toby Alderweireld.

Liverpool full-back Robertson said the performance was more promising than in their defeat to Russia on Friday night, but insists they need to go back to basics in the future.

Robertson said of the performance: “Strangely a wee bit more positive than Friday. We played better at times, we had spells in the game when we played more like us.

“But at this level, we have a free-kick at 10 minutes at 0-0 and we leave ourselves two versus one at the back and Lukaku is not missing from there.

“So, you end up 1-0 down when you have started really well. These are things that we need to change.

“Three set-pieces, one for us, two for them, and we end up 3-0 down at half-time after actually not doing much wrong.

“These are the basic errors that we can't make. It is small margins, but small margins make a big difference,” he added.
