It is a game everyone involved with Scotland will want to forget. Just ten days after losing to Ukraine in the World Cup play-off in the summer, Steve Clarke’s side were humbled 3-0 in Dublin. Scotland found themselves 2-0 down within the first 30 minutes with goals from Alan Browne and Troy Parrott before Michael Obafemi completed the rout after the interval. It was one of the worst performances during Clarke's tenure.
