Kieran Tierney Doubtful for Scotland’s Nations League Playoff with Israel in March

Kieran Tierney Doubtful for Scotland’s Nations League Playoff with Israel in March

Kieran Tierney is seriously doubtful for Scotland‘s Nations League playoff against Israel, after the left-back was ruled-out for around three months.

Tierney started Arsenal’s 3-1 win over West Ham on Monday night, but was substituted in the first-half with what looked like a painful-looking shoulder injury, and now the worst has been confirmed.

According to the BBC, Tierney dislocated his shoulder in the London derby, and won’t be available until March at the earliest – leaving the 22-year-old extremely doubtful for the showdown with Israel.

Even if Tierney has recovered in time for the clash at Hampden on March 26, he probably won’t be match-fit, and it’s probably a safe bet to assume he won’t be involved.

If Steve Clarke’s Scotland side manage to see off Israel, they’ll face either Norway or Serbia for a place at Euro 2020 – so how big a blow is it that Tierney seems set to miss out?
