Scotland 2-1 Cyprus

In his first game, new manager Steve Clarke recalled David Marshall, for his first game in two and a half years. He also gave a debut to Eamonn Brophy, who he managed at Kilmarnock. Scotland almost took the lead, five minutes into Steve Clark's reign, when a shot by Forrest went just over the bar. 20 minutes later, Mulgrew saw his powerful free kick palmed wide by the keeper. Scotland then had a penalty claim when a Fraser cross may have come off the defender's arm. Following that, Marshall had to make a low save from a shot by Sotiriou. Scotland needed someone to step up, and on the hour mark captain Andy Robertson did just that. He received a pass from McGinn on the left and unleashed a cracking shot into the top corner, from outside the box, making it 1-0. A couple of minutes later, Callum McGregor had his shot spilled wide by the keeper. With 12 minutes left, Marshall was called into action, tipping a deflected shot by Makris over the bar. From the resulting corner, Scotland broke away and Fraser played a great ball through to O'Donnell, who lifted it over the keeper, but the ball went just wide of the post. With six minutes remaining, Fraser had a great shot saved by the keeper. It was still only 1-0, and Scotland were punished in the 87th minute, when an unmarked Kousoulos, headed a corner past Marshall. It looked like Clarke's first match would end in bitter disappointment, until the 89th minute, when Fraser floated a cross into the box for substitute Oliver Burke. His header hit the post, but he was quickly on hand to knock the rebound into the net, and give Scotland a deserved 2-1 win.
