The Millwall goalkeeper has been included in plenty of squads over the past few years but has never actually started a game between the sticks for the dark blues, but last night’s friendly against Peru in Lima was finally his chance to show what he can do.
However, things didn’t go to plan, and it wasn’t long before Archer had come rushing prematurely out of his area, and gifted the home side a penalty.
Archer couldn’t do anything about the spot-kick, and he couldn’t do anything about Jerfferson Farfan’s second goal just after half-time either – although he really should’ve saved it.
The time of kick-off back in Scotland was 2am, but Archer’s errors were definitely making waves back home:
One thing that we all can take away from the match this morning is that @Jordan_Archer has ruled himself out of playing for the national team for the considerable future at least.
The last time I saw him play at club level he had a nightmare too.#PERSCO.

Hard to believe Jordan Archer played badly for Scotland after playing badly every week this season.

Good to see Jordan Archer is just as shite for Scotland as he is for Millwall
