Chelsea wonderkid Billy Gilmour extends ridiculous run of being named man of the match on full competition debut

CHELSEA star Billy Gilmour extended his stunning run of being named man-of-the-match on his full competition debut as Scotland drew 0-0 with England.

The midfielder has claimed the award in his first full appearance in the Premier League, FA Cup, Champions League and now the Euros.



Gilmour, 20, played 76 minutes at Wembley as his side earned a valuable point in Group D.

He was replaced by Southampton's Stuart Armstrong but was widely praised for his performance after the game.

It was Gilmour's first start for his country but it looked like he'd been a regular on the international scene for years.

His full Premier League debut was Chelsea's 4-0 win over Everton at Stamford Bridge on March 8, 2020.

Five days earlier the Scot made his full FA Cup debut in the Blues' 2-0 home win over Liverpool in the fifth round.

And he completed the hat-trick with a top showing as the West Londoners drew 1-1 against Krasnodar in the Champions League on December 8, 2020.

Many said Scotland deserved to win at Wembley although it was a pretty grim showing from both teams.

There were only three shots on target in the game – two for the Scots and one for England.

The Three Lions had 61 per cent possession but could not do anything with it.

Gilmour uploaded a picture of himself with his 'star-of-the-match' award after the Wembley showcase.

And he wrote: "What a performance by the boys tonight. Fans were unreal all night!"

The post received more than 57,000 likes.

Two-cap international Gilmour is said to be eyeing a loan move away from Chelsea next season to revive his club career.
