Rangers No.18 Glen Kamara was in action on Thursday night as Finland suffered a 3-1 defeat to Denmark in their UEFA EURO 2024 qualifier.

After finding himself left on the bench by Michael Beale in recent weeks, it was up for debate whether the 27-year-old would be ready to make an impact on the international scene.

With than in mind, let’s take a look at how he performed…

Glen Kamara impressed after recent Rangers snub

Well, Kamara showed no signs of rustiness in Copenhagen.

Despite a disappointing defeat for Finland in their first UEFA EURO 2024 qualifier, the £50,000 man can still be proud of his performance from an individual point of view.

Kamara – as shown by SofaScore – completed 60 of his attempted 66 passes to leave Copenhagen with a 91% pass success rate, while he also had 76 touches of the ball on a night where he wasn’t afraid to take possession and try to make things happen.

The Rangers No.18 also won all three of his ground duels against Denmark in the form of two successful tackles and one interception.

Kamara’s efforts were made all the more impressive by the fact that he was up against some quality Premier League opposition in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Mikkel Damsgaard, Christian Nørgaard and Mathias Jensen.

The Tampere-born midfield maestro is clearly keen to show Beale that he was wrong to leave him on the bench for the recent 3-1 win against Kilmarnock as well as the 4-1 victory over Hibernian.

Beale also gave the £21,000-a-week man just 12 minutes of action in the 4-2 win over Motherwell last time out.

Kamara goes up against Northern Ireland in another UEFA EURO 2024 qualifying match on Sunday, and if he delivers another impressive performance, Beale may have a decision to make ahead of the clash against Dundee United on Saturday 1st April.
