Euro 2020: Lyndon Dykes; Scotland's cult hero

Lyndon Dykes has become something of a cult hero for Scotland, and the QPR striker will be desperate to make a splash against England in Group D.

Lyndon Dykes

Lyndon Dykes has had an up-and-down first season in English football following his move from Livingstone, facing criticism throughout the campaign for his barren spells without a goal.

However, the Scottish striker did manage to hit 12 goals for QPR this season, helping the Rs to a top-half finish. Not a bad first season in England's second tier.

What is expected goals (xG)?

  • Expected goals (xG) is a metric that measures the quality of any given scoring opportunity
  • Expected assists (xA) measures the likelihood that a given pass will become a goal assist

Dykes only played twice in qualifying for Scotland, be he has scored twice in his other eight appearances for the Tartan Army, and he has become something of a cult hero due to his rough-and-tumble approach to centre-forward play, as well as his ever-changing hairstyles.

Scotland are 150/1 outsiders to win the Euros, but it would only take a goal against England in the group stage to cement Dykes’ legendary status amongst the Scotland faithful.
