Double delight for Naysmith
Gary Naysmith drives home Scotland's second goal
Gary Naysmith scored with a fantastic right foot strike
Scotland goal hero Gary Naysmith revealed that the strike that sunk Iceland was a double first.

Not only was it his debut goal for the Scots it was also the first time in his career he had found the net using his right foot.

It was certainly a strike to remember as, with the Scots digging in to keep hold of a lead given to them by Christian Dailly's early header, he produced a remarkable shot on the turn to beat goalkeeper Arni Gautur Arason.

Maurice Ross supplied a cross from the right and the left wing-back controlled the ball on the edge of the penalty box with his right foot before swivelling to convert in style.

"It's the first goal I've scored with my right foot as a professional and it couldn't have come at a better time really," said a delighted Naysmith.

"It was just a spur of the moment thing. I just stuck my leg out to control it and I think I caught the goalkeeper unawares.

"The last goal I scored was 18 months ago."

Naysmith, who has been out of the first team picture at Everton recently, was treated for a twisted knee late in the first half, but soldiered on to make an impact after the interval.

"I just hope it is not too serious so I can get a run in the Everton team," he continued.

"I can't expect to keep being picked for Scotland if I'm not playing for Everton."


Scotland 3-1 Canada

Iceland 0-2 Scotland
