Ché Adams helped Scotland claim an important three points in Group F with a 1-0 victory over Austria in Vienna on Tuesday night.

Boosting their World Cup qualification hopes by leapfrogging Israel, the Saints striker played a pivotal role in the only goal of the game.

With Adams winning a penalty after a VAR review adjudged the 25-year-old was fouled in the box, Queens Park Rangers striker Lyndon Dykes converted from 12 yards with half-an-hour played.

Adams’s involvement could’ve been greater when presented with a good chance 10 minutes from time, but under pressure from a recovering Austria defence he could only fire a shot just wide of the target.

Elsewhere, Moi Elyounoussi concluded a successful spell away with Norway as Ståle Solbakken’s side collected a second successive qualifying win.

Coming off the back of scoring in the 2-0 win over Latvia last time out, the Saints winger completed 81 minutes as Gibraltar were dismissed 5-1 Oslo.

The result leaves Norway second in Group G, undefeated in their last four qualifying matches.

Completing a perfect night for Southampton’s international contingent, Tino Livramento was handed an England Under-21 debut as Lee Carsley began his tenure with a 2-0 UEFA Euro 2023 Under-21 qualifying win over Kosovo in Milton Keynes.

The full-back was introduced with seven minutes remaining to mark the latest milestone in an already impressive season.
