Jordan Rhodes says Scotland are due some luck
SCOTLAND striker Jordan Rhodes is looking for some better fortune under new manager Gordon Strachan.
The Scots’ hopes of reaching the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil are all but over after taking just two points from their first four qualifiers to leave them bottom of Group A.
The Blackburn Rovers striker is looking forward to a new era under Strachan which starts with a friendly against Estonia at Pittodrie tomorrow night where he hopes the Scots start to enjoy a rub of the green.
“I think we need a bit of luck to be honest,” said the 22-year-old son of former Dunfermline and St Johnstone goalkeeper Andy Rhodes. Although English-born, he qualifies to play for Scotland due to his attendance at a Scottish school.
“When I was watching the games, particularly before I was even involved in the set-up, I was thinking a roll of the ball here or there or a decision by the referee...
“Hopefully over the course of a certain amount of games or a couple of years, your luck changes and you do manage to get a goal or two more.
“But all you can do is keep working hard and ploughing on and hopefully your luck does change.”
