Aston Villa fans on Twitter lauded John McGinn after he netted a hat-trick for Scotland against minnows San Marino on Sunday evening.
Scotland have endured a number of difficult moments on the international stage, and whilst they were playing against the worst team in the world, their 6-0 win is one that will provide comfort to all associated.
McGinn has been a regular since Steve Clarke was given the managerial role and his recent hat-trick will only cement his place in Scotland’s midfield even further.
Villa fans weren’t surprised with McGinn’s heroics because they have seen him put in performances like that, week in and week out.
He has scored three goals for Dean Smith’s side this season and his manager will be pleased that he will be returning to Villa Park full of confidence.
Villa thrashed Norwich City 5-1 prior to the international break, and when the players return to Bodymoor Heath, they will be preparing for a home clash against Brighton.
McGinn will want to showcase his true worth once again, as it could be argued that if he performs at his best then the three points could be Villa’s once again on Saturday.
Here is a selection of Villa fans reacting to McGinn’s performance for Scotland:
