Scotland are one game away from their first major finals since 1998 after a nerve-shredding win on penalties against Israel at Hampden.

Kenny McLean scored the pivotal spot-kick in the depleted Scots’ first ever shootout, with only a victory in Serbia on 12 November now separating Steve Clarke’s men from Euro 2020.

It was a dull affair at an empty national stadium between two below-par teams, but five perfect penalties from the hosts have a nation daring to dream of reaching a long-awaited tournament.

Scotland, without a clutch of players after call-offs due to Covid-19 protocols and injury, are now on a six-game unbeaten run.
