Liam Palmer, right back from Sheffield Wednesday: « My nanny – my Scottish heritage – is not with us anymore but I know she was proud »; Watch the Slovakia vs Scotland match live on Sky Sports Football 1. 30 pm on Sunday; Kick-off at 2 pm
Scotland defender Liam Palmer believes he would have made his late grandmother proud after qualifying for Euro 2020.
Sheffield Wednesday right-back was an unused substitute in the penalty shootout victory over Serbia on Thursday.
The victory sparked cheerful scenes on the pitch and at the team’s hotel in Belgrade, as well as homes across Scotland..
Palmer said the achievement made him think about how his Scottish grandmother celebrated the occasion.
The English-born defender said: “My family was very emotional when I spoke to them after the match. My nanny – my Scottish heritage – wasn’t with us anymore but I know she was proud.
“She was going to turn the whole street to her house and watch it. She was the kind of woman – with open arms for anyone. She would be proud. The family was really proud.
Scotland’s achievement was colossal. They have not qualified for a major tournament since the 98 World Cup in France.
They will now play the European Championship next summer in Group D, alongside England, Croatia and the Czech Republic.
Palmer, 29, insists that ending 22 years of harm was the driving force for the team, but they also wanted to lift the nation due to the devastating effects of the Coronavirus. .
He added, “We all celebrated and enjoyed each other’s company at the team hotel. I’ve seen what that means for the country – families celebrate – we’ve all seen the videos on social media. This was the driving force for our entry into the game.
« Just as Ryan Christie said in his awesome interview, the passion was there. The boys knew that after a difficult year we could put so much joy on the faces of so many people. I’m so glad the boys were able to do that.
