From the publisher:
A Nation Again is the chaotic tale of the Scotland men's team's return to a major tournament after more than 20 years in the wilderness. Ten major tournaments had come and gone for Scotland since they reached France '98, but the birth of UEFA's Nations League offered a new route to glory. In early 2018, after a long search for Gordon Strachan's replacement, Alex McLeish became manager for a second time.
But despite successfully navigating the Nations League group stage, it wasn't plain sailing, and his tenure ended after a shocking defeat at the start of Euro 2020 qualifying. With a play-off semi-final on the horizon, the Scottish FA turned to Steve Clarke, who took on the challenge of inspiring a team rooted in failure, creating a band-of-brothers mentality and figuring out how to organise this incredibly talented group of players. From a couple of the lowest lows came the highest high.
With exclusive memories of those who were part of the journey, this is the story of how Scotland finally became a nation again.
Andy Bargh's biggest passion is the Scotland national team. Growing up without seeing his side at a major tournament, he became obsessed with Scotland's attempts to reach one. He works as a football commentator for BBC Scotland, commentated on Scotland in the European Championship and in his spare time hosts the Hampden Roar Scotland podcast, featuring exclusive interviews with former players and panel-based debate episodes.
