John McGinn has revealed his Aston Villa team-mate Matty Cash was “fairly alert” ahead of Scotland’s friendly against Poland at Hampden on Thursday night.
The Aston Villa duo will lock up the horns tonight as McGinn has revealed Cash told him ‘we’re going to win’ and ‘we’re better than you’. as he told Sky Sports Football.
They may well be team-mates when reprising their Villa colors but it will be a different story for their respective countries.
Villa’s flying right-back is new to international football having recently joined Poland.
While McGinn was dynamite for Scotland in the middle of the park as he shared what was said between himself and Cash ahead of tonight’s game.
“Aye, a lot (banter)” said McGinn. “He’s quite lively. He says: “We will win. And we’re better than you.
“No, he’s good. I’m happy for him. When he found out he could play for Poland, he was dying to do it.
“And he was top notch for us at Villa so certainly we had banter between us.
“But I’m sure he’ll want to get one over on me and I’ll certainly want to do the same.”
Scotland were set to play Ukraine in tonight’s game, with Russia taking on Poland.
But Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has resulted in the former being banned from international football for obvious reasons and the latter unable to play.
While Scotland are still facing the dreaded play-offs to reach the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
They excelled under Steve Clarke, with McGinn being his side’s top scorer and perhaps their best player since his appointment.
