Steven Naismith wants central role for Scotland

Steven Naismith wants central role for ScotlandEverton forward Steven Naismith has moved to suggest that he would be happy to play as a centre forward in the Scotland national team.

Gordon Strachan has struggled to find the perfect solution for the lone striker role, with Steven Fletcher failing to score in seven of eight Euro 2016 qualifiers.

And it looks as though in-form forward Steven Naismith could get the nod in the crucial qualifier vs Poland, where Scotland are 2.62 (13/8) to record a win and keep their qualifying hopes alive.

And after scoring a hat-trick in the impressive victory over Chelsea, the Everton star believes he can get the job done.

“It’s a role I’ve played before but it’s the manager’s call,” Naismith told BBC Radio Scotland.

“We’ve got a lot of good forward players who will all fancy their chances for the next couple of games next month. A lot of it will be determined by how they’re doing at their clubs from now until then.”

Scotland sit four points behind third-placed Republic of Ireland in the Group D standings, but they still harbour hopes of clinching the play-off berth.
