There’s been a slight glitch in the supply chain. Having struck twice in his first four appearances, Dykes, who grew up in Australia, has not scored in his last ten. This is not to say, however, that he’s been failing to make an impression. Just ask Luke Shaw.

Dykes re-adopted the shaved head look last seen in Belgrade ahead of Friday’s crunch match with England. “When the boys see I’ve done this, they know it means we’re going to war,” he explained yesterday while sitting on the veranda of a plush members’ golf club at Scotland s training camp in County Durham.
