Christophe Berra spoke of his pride at scoring his second Scotland goal after his first-half header gave Craig Levein's side a 1-1 draw against Slovenia in their friendly at the Bonifika Stadium.

Midfielder Andraz Kirm had given Slovenia the lead in the 32nd minute with a header from a Miso Brecko cross but seven minutes later the Scots were back on level terms with a similar goal when Berra buried the ball past Samir Handanovic from Charlie Adam's corner.

Berra said: "I've been at Wolves for three years and I have not scored yet in a competitive game. To score two for Scotland in 12 months is a great achievement and I am very proud."

He added: "If we start the next qualifying group the way we finished the last one for the European Championships then we have a right good chance.

"Slovenia are a good team. They have been to the World Cup twice in the last 10 years and a lot of them play in the top division in Italy.

"So to come over here and get a draw and limit them to very few chances is good."

Berra added: "The first half we played really well. We had a lot of the ball and had a few chances.

"They dominated the ball a lot more in the second-half, but we sat a bit deep and limited them to few chances."
