Scotland manager Alex McLeish wants reluctant hero James McFadden to grab the headlines again by scoring the winner against Ukraine at Hampden.

The Everton striker´s sublime goal against France in Paris last month took the Scots to the top of Group B with only three Euro 2008 qualifying matches remaining and, although the 24-year-old has been uncomfortable with the adulation received, McLeish encouraged him to become a hero again.

He said: "James is a humble person and he will not think he is a superstar all of a sudden. He is probably a little bit embarrassed about the whole thing but I would like him to embarrass himself again."
