Scotland feel 'close' to glory - Martinez Losa

Scotland boss Pedro Martinez Losa says his side feel like they can compete against anyone after a strong start to their Euro qualifiers.

The Scots are top of their group after wins against Israel and Slovakia and are guaranteed a spot in the play-offs.

"There’s an aspect of feeling closer and the chance to get better and better," the Spaniard said.

"It’s a challenging time, there’s the risk of injury but also the players are starting to feel what they are achieving.

"As a football player you realise that you previously would not think you could compete against teams like Austria and Belgium or others who were ahead of us in the FIFA ranking.

"Now every time we face these opponents, we have the feeling we can compete and be a better team on the day."
