QPR striker Jamie Mackie is "buzzing" after opening his goalscoring account for Scotland on Tuesday night. The 25-year-old hit the third goal in Scotland's 3-0 win over the Faroe Islands at Pittodrie. "I'm absolutely buzzing," he told Rangers' official website. "It's a massive achievement for me and hopefully the first of many at this level. "There's an element of pressure when you come into the squad because you're asked to perform. I wanted to show everyone what I'm about to make sure I stay in the squad. "The pressure is from myself and I'm pleased with how I did."
