’s side as they came back from behind for the second time during the match. Ahead of their clash against Israel on Sunday,

Scott McTominay

has spoken about his team’s current form and their mentality.

"That's been reiterated by the players and management, just having that self-confidence and arrogance in the way that we approach games, knowing that we have got very good players who play at the highest level and can go on and dominate sides as well,"

McTominay told

Sky Sports News

.

"For us that has to be the benchmark, the minimum we go into matches, knowing that whoever we play we are not worried so the confidence around all the players, we can go and do it."

Despite being a midfielder in

Manchester United

, the 24-year-old has been used in Scotland’s backline on a number of occasions. However, he insists he is not bothered by these changes.

"It's like normality, being back in midfield but wherever the manager wants me to play, I'm happy to do so,"

he added.

"That's genuine, if he said 'I want you to play here, I want you to play there', I wouldn't question him [Clarke], I would just do it because that's what we need, everybody to be pushing in the right direction.

"You saw that with the Euros [qualification] and it's a really good thing."

Asked about his current ambitions, McTominay responded:

"I'm just desperate to win a trophy in club football with Manchester United, that's my priority at the moment,"

he said.

"The rest, in terms of the league and how we want to progress, will hopefully follow suit in due course.

"I feel as though we are building towards a good team and with international football, we want to go to the World Cup."
