How the Scotland players rated in disappointing 1-1 draw in Israel

Scotland came from behind to earn a point for the second World Cup qualifier in succession – but the draw in Israel leaves them with it all to do in Group F.

Ryan Fraser’s early second half strike cancelled out Dor Peretz’s first half opener for the home side as Steve Clarke’s side made it two points from two matches following the 2-2 draw with Austria on Thursday.

Sharp reaction to deny Solomon early on but should have stopped opener from Peretz. Got two hands to strike but couldn't push it wide. Serbia hero looking suspect from long-range strikes in first 2 qualifiers.
Misjudged early header to set up chance for Solomon and earn ticking off from Tierney. Never looked convincing or commanding before being replaced at the break.
Unsteady and unsure in the first half - sitting too deep, marking empty space and inviting pressure. More comfortable second half after switch to back four but will need to be more commanding to win over Scotland doubters.
Best of a bad bunch at the back in first half, improved like the rest of the team after the break. Was often in the right place at the right time when Israel attacked. Made one particularly important clearing header in the second half.
Far too deep in first half and offered Scotland nothing in possession. Improved after the break, got forward more and made some good blocks at the back.
Judged more harshly than others due to club success, but again not the attacking force we often see for Liverpool down the left. Looked more comfortable at left back in second half but when he got forward delivery was frustratingly poor.
Gives Scotland a presence in midfield but never quite got a firm grip on the game. Couldn't close the ball down quick enough at Israel opener and fluffed a chance to grab a late winner with tame side-foot.
Busy performance without being particularly influential. Neat and tidy in possession but not the driving force from midfield he can be. Got forward early on and shot wide but rarely seen in forward areas thereafter.
Struggled to get into game or into the areas where he could hurt Israel. Gave the ball away more than he kept it. The hero against Austria was surprisingly poor tonight. Just not his night.
Spent much of the first half chasing back as the team backed off but always lively and produced terrific finish for the equaliser. If he could have found the same quality on his cross balls he could have been the matchwinner.
Impressive on first start despite isolated first half. Crucial part in equaliser, drawing in three defenders before laying off to Fraser. Also showed great footwork in box before forcing save from Marciano. Movement and link-up a game-changer for Scotland.
On at half-time and energy helped press Israel defence into errors. Played crucial part in equaliser by pinching possession from throw-in. Not clinical enough when he found himself in and around the box though.
Odd change when Scotland pushing for a winner. Slotted in fine in midfield but didn't provide the difference needed.

Should have been on earlier - perhaps at half-time along with Christie. 87th minute introduction too late to impact the game and denied him the chance to link-up with Southampton club-mate Adams.
