Robert Snodgrass withdrew from Scotland’s squad for their Euro 2020 qualifier against San Marino through injury, as reported on West Ham United’s official website.
The 32-year-old reportedly picked up a minor calf problem ahead of the match against the European minnows, though it is not yet certain whether it will keep him out for the Hammers’ match against Everton on Saturday.
Prior to pulling out of the San Marino game, Snodgrass’ international break had seen him play the full 90 minutes of Scotland’s 4-0 loss at the hands of Russia, as per Transfermarkt.
Back in East London, Snodgrass has started 1 Premier League game this season, coming on as a substitute 3 times, while starting both of the club’s Carabao Cup games, as per WhoScored.
In the league, the Scotsman has averaged 0.5 key passes, 1 dribble, 0.5 tackles and 0.8 crosses per game, which isn’t bad considering those 4 performances only total 144 minutes – though he does need to improve his pass completion rate of 73.2%.
It will be a bonus if Snodgrass is available for the Everton match in terms of bodies available, but it won’t be a massive loss if he can’t considering how little he has played throughout this campaign.
Therefore, it isn’t worth rushing him back to be involved in the game unless he is completely ready to play a part.
Can West Ham make the top six?
