WATCH: James Forrest’s scores outstanding hat-trick for Scotland in Nations League

James Forrest is just about in the form of his life at this moment in time.

After tearing apart RB Leipzig in the Europa League and scoring three goals in his last four domestic appearances for Celtic, it’s fair to say he was the form player in the Scotland squad heading into the international break.

Before their recent double-header against Albania and Israel, Forrest had failed to score for his country in 24 attempts. However, he emphatically put that drought to an end over this international break, scoring five goals across two games,

It started with a brace in the 4-0 demolition job of Albania on Saturday night and the 27-year-old added to his tally with a brilliant hat-trick at Hampden Park to gain promotion in the Nations League for Scotland.

With that, they are also entered into a play-off for a place in Euro 2020 and will face one of Finland, Norway or Serbia in the semi-finals next summer. It’s been a positive time for Scotland, who are now within touching distance of reaching a first European Championship since 1996.

That is in huge part thanks to the form of Forrest and watch below as the Celtic winger fired in a clinical hat-trick for his team. Watch below to see his hot run of form continue for his country.
