A Kieran Tierney header in the 68th minute was cancelled out in the 93rd minute by Krzysztof Piatek, who won and scored a penalty kick after Craig Gordon was harshly adjuged to have fouled the midfielder in the box in the last act of the match.

Nonetheless, it was another positive performance from Scotland buillding on their six previous wins built up over the World Cup qualifying campaign with Nathan Patterson and Billy Gilmour again standing out despite their struggles at their clubs.

Steve Clarke’s men enjoyed 54 per cent of possession and 15 shots, including six on target, and it was Arsenal defender Tierney who got the goal, glancing home a John McGinn free-kick to score his first goal for Scotland.

Scotland now face Austria on Tuesday in another friendly after they were defeated 2-1 by Wales in the World Cup play-off semi-final in Cardiff, who now lie in wait for the victors of the delayed Scotland v Ukraine play-off, which is scheduled for June.
