Queens Park Rangers striker Lyndon Dykes on his Scotland debut

Lyndon Dykes believes Scotland will secure a victory over Israel when the two sides meet at Hampden Park in October.

Dykes who is Australian born made his debut for Scotland in the 1-1 draw to Israel in Group B2 of the Uefa Nations League on Friday night.

“Obviously the coaching staff will look back at the video but as players as well, we should all take a look ourselves," he said.

“For me, I want to win, I think we should be winning that game.

“I think we should be pushing them, pressing them, we should be showing them that when they come here they have come for a battle.

“We’re going to work hard, we’ve got quality players and next time it comes around I think will be a different story.”

The Queens Park Rangers striker spoke of the confidence he has in his international teammates and what he hopes they can achieve next.

He said: “I’ve only been here for a few days, and look at the squad, we have world-class players.

“I think maybe some, sometimes we need a bit of belief. We have to go out there and think that we’re better than this team, we should be beating Israel.

“At the end of the day, it didn’t happen for us day and there’s always the next game.

“We didn’t lose the game. We got a point so it’s not the end of the world.”
