The Norwich City forward's winning goal for Scotland in Zagreb in June was an unexpected boon to Belgium's prospects of reaching next summer's World Cup finals as Marc Wilmots' side go toe-to-toe with Croatia for the one automatic qualifying spot at the top of Group A. The fascination extended to two Belgian journalists flying over to Scotland earlier this week to have a chat with Snodgrass, no doubt getting him to relive his moment in the spotlight one more time for the benefit of their readers.
"I was talking to the Belgian press and they were telling me I'm a national hero there now after scoring against Croatia," he said. "They were offering me boxes of chocolates and everything. No Stella sadly."
Given his apparent popularity from Brugge to Brussels it seems a pity that Snodgrass now intends to upset his new Belgian friends by helping Scotland to a win over them at Hampden on Friday. Two games isn't much of a sample size but the victory against Croatia followed by a strong, if ultimately unsuccesful, performance against England has given Snodgrass and his team-mates hope where none previously existed. After years in the doldrums, a foundation has been laid that Scotland can try to build from and Snodgrass believes under Gordon Strachan things are finally moving in the right direction.
"We're not going to get carried away," he said. "We are where we are, we haven't qualified. But there are signs, with each game, of Scotland improving. Even being underdogs against England, as we approached the game we puffed our chests out and said: 'no, we're just as good as you. We're playing against you at club level every week, so we're just as good as you - and it's about time we showed it'.
"You need to approach these games wanting to win them. Scotland have always had that desire, hard work, but it's different now playing against these top sides. You need that bit of quality, that bit of magic.
"You need players with no fear who will have a go and not be scared to take a shot from 25 yards. That's what you need in a team, that belief. You don't want to come away from a game thinking 'Well, we had a couple of shots on target' after you've worked your pan in.
"You want to work as hard as you possibly can while driving towards those moments of quality, having chances in areas to cause problems. The manager has given us the belief to feel that we can do it. He has said it repeatedly. And, as individuals, you need to believe in yourself - or you shouldn't be here."
Strachan has said he believes Scotland can qualify for Euro 2016 and Snodgrass revealed the new manager had already made a massive difference within the group. "I see it in him every training session. When he puts his ideas across to the players, he tells us: "Listen, you are good enough to do this - or you wouldn't have been picked. I'm picking you because I believe in you."
"But he also tells us that, once we cross that white line, it's up to us to produce that little bit of magic, make a clearance off the line, whatever it takes. He can only give us his ideas about how he wants to play. He genuinely believes in us, I think, because there is such a belief within the squad that we can go and win these games.
"Against Croatia, I don't think many people would have believed that we could get that result. But, within the squad, the belief was there. Mentally and physically, we prepare for a game. You have to believe you can get a result. That's the only way."
Snodgrass admited there had been times in the past when he didn't always look forward to reporting for international duty. "There was a lot of doom and gloom around Scottish football, with the Rangers thing, people saying: "Oh no, the Old Firm is gone, that's it …"
'Of course it impacts you, when you are coming to join your country and that's the mood. But we were unlucky, too, especially against Wales in the opening game of the campaign. Against Serbia, we could have nicked a result, too. There are always ifs, buts and maybes with Scotland. But I believe there should be no excuses. You try your best, try for the result. And now we've reached a stage where we are thinking to ourselves: 'No, I'm winning this football match.' It's exciting to feel that."
Another player feeling the excitement is Craig Bryson, who is desperate to end his three-year international exile after being drafted into the squad. The 26-year-old has not won a cap since November 2010, when he was a second-half substitute against the Faroe Islands at Pittodrie.
The combative midfielder, who has enjoyed an excellent start to the season with Derby County, said: "It is a great opportunity for me. I have never hid away from the fact that I am really keen to play for my country. This is a brilliant chance to do that."
