England

Jordan Pickford (GK) The goalkeeper made a great save to deny O’Donnell. He often fumed at his defenders. 6

Reece James (RB) Allowed Tierney to cross for O’Donnell’s chance. Fine clearance from Dykes’ header, which looked goal-bound. 6

John Stones (CB) Blocked Adams’s shot and headed against a post. England needed his composure at the back. 6

Tyrone Mings (CB) The centre-back did the simple things well, making interceptions and winning headers. A solid performance. 6

Luke Shaw (LB) Scotland exposed him twice and he provided little width on the left. Wasted one chance. 5

Declan Rice (CM) Struggled to squeeze the space in front of England’s defence. McGinn was an elusive opponent. 5

Kalvin Phillips (CM) Foolishly tangled with McGinn and failed to provide England with much imagination in the centre. 5

Mason Mount (CM) Clipped wide and tested Marshall with a fierce drive. Desperately tried to seize the initiative. 6

Phil Foden (RW) Nothing came off for him. His habit of chopping inside compressed the play too much. 5

Harry Kane (CF) Another abject display from the captain. Ponderous movement and dreadful passing before he was substituted. 3

Raheem Sterling (LW) The winger was erratic. His pace was a threat but his end product was lacking. 4

Substitutes:

Jack Grealish (for Foden, 63) The winger replaced the disappointing Foden and tried to run at Scotland, but it didn’t work. 6

Marcus Rashford (for Kane, 74) 6

Scotland

David Marshall (GK) Reacted quickly to push Mount’s shot away. Otherwise he was protected well by his defence. 7

Scott McTominay (RCB) Recovered from an early slip and excelled in an unfamiliar role. Looked to surge forward. 8

Grant Hanley (CB) The defender was dominant in his battle with Kane. He will remember this night fondly. 8

Kieran Tierney (LCB) Impressed on his return from injury. Defended well and created O’Donnell’s chance. A top player. 8

Stephen O’Donnell (RWB) An energetic presence and very unlucky not to score. Knuckled down to deal with Grealish. 7

Billy Gilmour (CM) The midfielder enjoyed his battle with Mount, his Chelsea teammate. His poise gave Scotland control. 8 (MOTM)

Callum McGregor (CM): Worked hard to smother England and close the space in the middle. Unselfish and tireless. 7

Andy Robertson (LWB) Combined with Tierney to create encouraging overloads on the left. Rarely lost track of Foden. 7

John McGinn (AM): His movement made him hard to pick up. He caused problems for Rice all night. 7

Lyndon Dykes (CF): A handful in the air and unlucky to see his volley cleared off the line. 7

Che Adams (CF): Gave everything to the cause but he spurned three good chances. Must improve his finishing. 6

Substitutes

Stuart Armstrong (for Gilmour, 76) 6

Kevin Nisbet (for Adams, 86) 6
