Leeds United: Fans react to Liam Cooper’s Scotland debut

Leeds United fans have been providing their reactions on Twitter regarding Liam Cooper’s debut for Scotland.

The Tartan Army were on the wrong end of a 2-1 defeat to Russia in one of their Euro 2020 qualifiers, despite having gone ahead inside the first ten minutes via Aston Villa’s John McGinn.

Goals from Artem Dzyuba and an own goal from Stephan O’Donnell just before the hour were enough for the visitors to take all three points.

The 28-year-old has been a mainstay for Marcelo Bielsa’s side this season and has put in a number of solid contributions for the Whites in their quest for promotion – having managed to achieve an average of one tackle, 1.6 interceptions and four clearances in his five Championship appearances so far (WhoScored) – which, perhaps, justified Steve Clarke’s decision to include him.
