Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has been forced to withdraw from the Scotland squad through injury. The 21-year-old — who made his international debut in a 1-0 defeat to Costa Rica last week — will not feature in Scotland’s upcoming game against Hungary. As of yet, we’ve got no further information on the nature of the injury, or whether he’ll be fit to play when United take on Swansea City on the weekend.

José Mourinho will certainly be hoping it’s not a serious one, with McTominay having forced his way into United’s first team recently. He featured throughout United’s recent league wins over Liverpool, Chelsea and Huddersfield, and seems to have won the trust of United’s coach. It remains to be seen whether he’s got what it takes to make it in the long run, but early signs are promising.

McTominay was born in Lancaster, though qualifies to play for Scotland through his father. He’s been at United since 2002, and made his first-team debut in a 2-0 league win over Crystal Palace last season.
