Craig Gordon 8

A quieter night that might’ve been expected for the giant keeper against Denmark. Confident in collecting the ball from crosses and a calming influence of the defence. Magnificent one-handed stop from Cornelius header in the second, albeit the striker was offside.

Andy Robertson 8

Tremendous shift from the Scotland skipper who was a constant threat down the left flank. Countless dangerous balls into the box, but disciplined defensively when it was required. Major concern seeing the flying full-back forced off with ten minutes left.

Kieran Tierney 8

Nothing less than expected from Tierney. Dovetailed with Robertson well on the left all night. Tucked in as part of the terrific back-three who didn’t give anything away all night.

Liam Cooper 8

Strong, fearless and a leader among the central defenders. Kept Cornelius quiet and made some crucial clearing headers as Denmark searched for a leveller. Made his mark in the opposition box too teeing up Souttar’s opener.

John Souttar 9

A dream return to the Scotland side for the defender. Colossal in defence from the first minute and didn’t look one bit out of place. Excellent header to score the all important winner in a huge international performance. A key man going forward.

Stephen O’Donnell 7

Recalled into the line-up for the suspended Nathan Patterson and performed admirably. Proved his worth to the squad with a tireless shift at right-back against top opposition.

Billy Gilmour 8

The little commander in midfield. Barked orders at his team-mates throughout and dictated play well for large spells. Confident in taking the ball in tight areas and not afraid to get stuck in.

John McGinn 9

Magnificent. Surging runs, clever passing and relentless tracking back. A talisman in the Scotland midfield with another world-class performance. Fitting that he took the armband for final minutes after captain’s performance.

Callum McGregor 8

Trademark McGregor with non-stop pressing and a calm head when on the ball. Dropped in well to allow McGinn to advance and put his foot on the ball to slow things down when things started to get hectic.

Ryan Christie 7

Supported Adams well and provided neat and tidy touches to keep the ball in advanced areas. Probably didn’t see as much of the ball as he’d have liked but wasn’t wasteful when he was in possession.

Che Adams 9

Another impressive performance from the Southampton striker tasked with leading the line without Lyndon Dykes. Did his best to provide an out-ball and held up play well. Took his goal perfectly to seal the win late on.

Kenny McLean (for Gilmour, 74) 4

Provided energy in midfield in closing stages.

Scott McKenna (for Robertson, 79) 4

Slotted into defence well for last ten.

Stuart Armstrong (for Christie, 79) 5

Perfectly weighted through-ball for Adams’ late strike, almost had one of his own.

Anthony Ralston (for Tierney, 88) 2

One for the final minutes.
