Interesting Fact
This was Scotland's biggest away win since 1949.

Scotland went into the Gibraltar match with nothing to play for but pride.  Strachan made seven changes to the starting eleven that played against Poland.  Scotland almost took the lead after 11 minutes when Maloney shot over the bar from a Fletcher cross.  12 minutes later, Maloney had a header saved by their keeper.  From the resulting corner, Greer headed on the ball to the back post, where Chris Martin headed it over the line to get his first international goal.  Ten minutes later, Steven Fletcher hit the post when me latched on to a Chris Martin cross.  Four minutes later, a blocked shot by Dorrans fell to Maloney, who curled the ball into the far corner to give Scotland a 2-0 lead at half time.  Six minutes into the second half, Steven Fletcher made it three when he headed a Hutton cross past the keeper.  Four minutes later, Fletcher got another when he received a pass from Chris Martin inside the box, and he hit a low shot past the keeper that went in off the post to make it 4-0.  Midway through the second half, substitute Johnny Russell had a shot go just over the bar.  With just over five minutes remaining, Naismith played a great ball into the path of Fletcher on the edge of the box, who hit a superb curling shot into the top corner off the bar, to het his second hat-trick against Gibraltar.  A few minutes later, Russell was denied his first goal for Scotland when their keeper pulled off a great reflex save.  In injury time at the end, Naismith collected the ball on the wing, before he played the one-two with Fletcher, and hit a low shot past their keeper, to round it off with a 6-0 victory.  Scotland's biggest away victory since 1949.
