Super John McGinn

John McGinn is one of Scotland’s best players and has been a key figure to Steve Clarke’s national team’s major resurgence.

In 2012, John would start his career at St Mirren where he would make his professional debut against Celtic in a 5-0 defeat. Before long he would have moved to the east coast to join Hibernian for £1million, where he would be selected for his first international cap at the age of 21. This came as a 1-0 win against Denmark where McGinn was selected as Player of the Match.

Fast forward to today and McGinn has racked up an impressive 54 caps where he has played under managers such as Gordon Strachan, Alex McLeish and Steve Clarke with the latter helping him to achieve his 16 goal tally for Scotland by playing him in a more advanced role on the pitch compared to his deeper role at Aston Villa, which shows his midfield versatility.

This jersey comes from Scotland’s most recent success against Spain where Scott McTominay bagged himself a brace in a 2-0 win at Hampden. McGinn was substituted by Lewis Ferguson after running the midfield for 83 minutes. McGinn was rated an 8/10 this game with only McTominay ranking higher. As a whole, this game will go down as a historic win for Scotland and will be a massive boost for qualifying for Euro 2024 in Germany.
