Scotland fans give their assessment of Barry Bannan's display against the Czech Republic

The Sheffield Wednesday midfielder returned to the international scene after a year-long absence, earning his 21st cap.

Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan played 32 minutes of Scotland's 1-0 friendly win over the Czech Republic on Thursday.

It was the Airdrieonian's first Tartan Army appearance since he came off the bench in a 6-1 win demolition of Gibraltar in March 2015, and followed a string of stellar performances at club level.

While he may have scored on just two occasions for the Owls this season - and created as many assists - Bannan has pulled most of the strings in Carlos Carvalhal's midfield, and was named the club's player of the month for October.

As a result, a number of Wednesdayites paid particularly close attention to the 26-year-old's comeback - not least as clubmate Daniel Pudil was named on the Czech bench.

Not surprisingly, the view from South Yorkshire was one of positivity, but how did the Scots rate Bannan's performance?

For the most part, those on Twitter were appreciative of the former Aston Villa man's efforts, although by the looks of it, some will need more convincing:


Watford's Ikechi Anya scored the only goal of the game in Prague, firing home in the 10th minute following a counter.
