Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour may be struggling at club level with Norwich, but he’s definitely a top player for his country, Scotland.

Gilmour started for Scotland in their crucial World Cup qualifier against Denmark and he played a vital role in the middle of the park as the Scots got a 2-0 home win against Denmark.

The win now means that Scotland have been seeded in the World Cup play-off semi-finals, as they look to reach next year’s tournament in Qatar.

Gilmour lasted 74 minutes on the pitch in the game on Monday, and his performance was hailed as a top quality performance.

“Technically, he looked on another level at points in the first half. Was vital in regaining possession in second half to turn the game after Denmark applied pressure. It’s crazy to think he wasn’t an automatic starter earlier in summer. Scotland’s best prospect in a long time,” Football Scotland wrote.

The 20-year-old has been linked with a loan move from Norwich to another club in January, after being dumped on the bench by Daniel Farke. However, Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has called for patience until January.
