Scotland national team manager Steve Clarke firmly believes that John McGinn is on top form and its only the beginning for the midfielder after he scored a brace in their 3-1 victory over Kazakhstan, Sky Sports revealed.
McGinn who plays for Aston Villa in the Premier League scored two goals after Steven Naismith had scored the equaliser through a header and that was enough to seal the deal for Scotland on Tuesday night.
The 25-year-old has now accumulated seven goals from a total of six appearances for Scotland but the manager believes that there is still more to come from the Villa star who is on an impressive streak.
"John is on a fantastic run of form. He has been great for Aston Villa for the last couple of seasons and he is starting to bring it onto the international stage," Clarke said.
"It's very important to remember he is still in the early stages of his international career. The more games you play at this level, the better you become. The more experience you get, the better the team will become.
"You look at someone like Steven Naismith who is a great example to them all. He plays with a great experience at this level and it was great to see him get his goal as well.
"When you've got any player in goalscoring form, that's good for any team.
"John is the man scoring the goals now and hopefully we'll get one or two more that can do that as well.
"We've found a good position for John. He's playing it very well, he and Steven Naismith are developing a decent understanding and as well as the goals they give us a good early press and the desire to meet the opposition high up the pitch which helps us as well."
McGinn who has scored three goals and provided two assists for Villa after 12 matches played expressed his delight in scoring for his side and further added that he hopes to continue his form for both his country and club.
"I think that it helps me that Naisy (Naismith) wants to come and link the play and I can feed off the scraps," he said.
"If I can help the team with goals, I am happy to do so. I am in a good run of form with goals and hopefully, I can carry it on.
"I probably could have had a hat-trick tonight.
"That's what the manager said. Being a bit picky maybe but I am getting in the positions and the important thing is the service is coming.
"The win was immensely important.
"We were a squad and nation battered with confidence towards the start of the campaign.
"Slowly but surely we have started to build that confidence and especially in the second half, you see a Scotland team again and one in March we can make the nation proud again."
