Arsenal fans love Tierney’s "ridiculous" tackle as Scotland reach play-offs

Arsenal fans have been expressing their joy at seeing Kieran Tierney’s wonderful tackle for Scotland during their 2-0 win against Moldova.

The Scotsman lunged brilliantly to deny Moldova a goal after Vadim Rata had his VAR-awarded penalty saved eight minutes from time.

After Craig Gordon saved the penalty, the ball flew back out and seemed destined to be scored on the rebound by Rata, but Tierney somehow managed to get his feet in first and put the ball out of play for a corner.

Arsenal’s official Twitter account reposted the goal and its supporters relished in delight about what they saw.

One said: “Unbelievable tackle, outrageous in fact. For a defender that’s like scoring an absolute worldie.”

Another commented: “That is a ridiculous challenge son.”

A third said: “Kieran Tierney is the best LB in the world imo. No bias.”

Piers Morgan piped in with, “Challenge of the season. Brilliant @kierantierney1.”

Steve Clarke’s side earned a place in the play-offs for the 2022 World Cup after Nathan Patterson and Che Adams provided goals to give Scotland a 2-0 win.

Is Kieran Tierney’s tackle the best challenge of the season? Let us know in the comments section below.

The victory means the national side are promised to finish in second spot in Group F and they will get a place in the play-offs in March.

Clarke told Sky Sports following the game’s conclusion that Patterson's performance was hugely impressive. The 20-year-old Rangers right-back was a sign of things to come, said the Scotland boss.

He said: "It was a performance of a young player who's going to develop into a really good player.

"Great finish on the goal, good link-up with John [McGinn] and a good finish with his left foot. Which, as a former right-back myself, I can recognise it's not something right-backs always do.

"The second goal saw Nathan involved again and John [McGinn] too and Che [Adams] was in the right place to get the second which made it more comfortable for us."
