The National:

YESTERDAY was a heartbreaking night for Scotland – despite leading 3-0 against Argentina at the World Cup, we ended up crashing out of the competition with a 3-3 draw.

It was still a remarkable achievement for Shelley Kerr and co, however. It was Scotland's first World Cup in 21 years, they scored five goals in three games, and there were unfortunate calls from referees throughout.

It was a boost for the women's game, and they'll have inspired boys and girls throughout the country.

So, as you might expect, the subject came up at First Minister's Questions.

Nicola Sturgeon spoke about why the side had plenty to be proud of.

Concluding her remarks, she said: "I’m sure I say it on behalf of all of us. They are feeling very, very sore this morning, but to all of them, you should be very, very proud of your achievements. You have done Scotland proud, and you will be back stronger than ever in the future."

A fairly reasonable remark, you'd think, and one that MSPs would want to echo and associate themselves with.

Indeed, that was the case for most of Holyrood – they clapped or banged their desks in approval.

Except for the front line of Tory MSPs. For some reason, Murdo Fraser, Ruth Davidson and Jackson Carlaw stayed still.

Do they maybe disagree about Scotland being back "stronger than ever" in the future? Star forward Erin Cuthbert is only 20, it seems a fairly safe bet to us...

Or perhaps they just didn't like hearing "Scotland ... stronger than ever" in the same sentence?

We're sure there's an innocent explanation, of course. We can't wait to hear it.
