Andy Robertson apologizes to Scottish fans as wait for World Cup appearance continues

It’s been 24 years since Scotland last competed in a World Cup and there was hope that that run would end this time, following last summer’s appearance at the Euro.

But the Scots won’t be in Qatar at the end of the year as they lost 3-1 to Ukraine at Hampden Park in the play-off semi-final after producing a lackluster performance.

The hosts increased their level slightly after falling 2-0 and halved the deficit through Callum McGregor threatening a stand finish, but Ukraine finished the job on the counter with the final kick of the game .

With Ukraine now traveling to Cardiff to take on Wales for a World Cup spot, Scotland’s wait continues and they will reflect on a missed opportunity after such a subpar display. .

“Extremely disappointing, we’ve waited a long time for this game,” Robertson told Sky Sports.

“Our performances before this game were really good, but today we didn’t really show up. Ukraine settled into the game faster than us, and it continued.

“We knew they were going to be tired, and they were, but we gave ourselves too much of an uphill battle. We didn’t play the way we wanted to, and that’s the most disappointing thing.

“It’s overtaken us now, and after a really positive campaign, we let ourselves down tonight. You have to hurt yourself, think, it’s the World Cup that lasted another four years, and it’s really hard .

“But we have to stick together as a group. All we can say is that we’re sorry to the fans for letting them down, but we’ll dust ourselves off and start over.
