OLIVER Burke says that his last-gasp winner for Scotland against Cyprus was the most important goal of his career, and he has now set his sights on doing similar damage to Belgium.

The West Brom man popped up in the last minute to save Steve Clarke's debut match turning into disaster after Andrew Robertson's stunning opener had been cancelled out late on by Ioannis Kousoulos.

That sparked an outpouring of relief around Hampden, and Burke was well aware of just how crucial a moment his strike could be in the qualifying campaign.

"It is a goal I will cherish forever," Burke said.

"It is definitely up there. Probably one of the best feelings I have had as a footballer.

"Getting another against Belgium would be even better.

"I am obviously hoping to kick forward now and do my best. I am going to work as hard as I can and put the shifts in in training and be ready for the next game."

Burke had come off the bench with a little under 20 minutes of the game left, replacing debutant Eamonn Brophy up front.

And after playing that role during his loan spell at Celtic last season, he feels he is ready to step up to the plate up front on Tuesday night in Brussels.

"I feel I have played that position for a while now," he said. "I benefited from my time in that position at Celtic and it is just about making sure I am ready at all times now.

"Whoever is in place to step forward and play that striker role has to be ready and be prepared to do the work because it is obviously a very tough job up top on your own. You have to put a shift in.

"Of course, I’d like to play there in Belgium. It would be an amazing opportunity, but we’ll see what happens."
