Gabby Agbonlahor praised by fans for NOT signing up to subscription platform to watch Scotland vs Spain

Aston Villa hero Gabby Agbonlahor has revealed that he did not watch Scotland’s sensational 2-0 win over Spain because he “can’t keep up” with the number of streaming services.

Scotland picked up back-to-back wins during the international break in their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, with Scott McTominay playing a key role in both matches.

Steve Clarke’s men defeated 10-men Cyprus 3-0 in their opening Euro 2024 qualifier before a stunning McTominay brace sealed their victory over Spain at Hampden Park on Tuesday.

The Scotland vs Spain clash was shown on the streaming service Viaplay, which debuted in the UK last November.



Speaking to former Scotland star Ally McCoist, Agbonlahor praised Clarke’s side for securing a “massive result” on the night against 2010 World Cup champions Spain.

However, the 36-year-old ex-England striker claimed that he refused to watch the Scotland vs Spain match as he had no plans of “signing up for this channel.”

“It’s a massive result and Ally, I didn’t get to watch the game because there are that many different channels now that the football is on,” he told talkSPORT.


“You’ve got Viaplay £15, BT Sport £30, Sky Sports £24, Amazon £9, you’ve got Premier Sports, I can’t keep up.

“I went to put it on Ally and I’m like, ‘No, I’m not signing up for this channel.’”

Agbonlahor, who has often divided fans with his outspoken views, earned praise from fans on social media over his streaming stance for Scotland’s Euro 2024 qualifier.


“It’s strange agreeing with Gabby Agbonlahor,” one fan said.

Someone else tweeted: “Bloke is actually spot on.”

While a third added: “The replies are ridiculous, for once Gabby is actually speaking facts.”

“Terrific bit from Agbonlahor here to be a pundit and refuse to watch the games for this clip here. Rare respect, Gabby,” a Twitter user wrote.


And a fifth posted: “Jokes aside. Spot on. Why was this allowed to happen?”

One fan commented: “Totally agree. I also think they all work in harmony to make sure you subscribe to all of them.”
