Shaun Maloney curled in an 89th-minute free-kick to give Scotland a narrow victory against FYROM.

Ikechi Anya was the star for much of the contest, effervescent on the left wing and breaking the deadlock in style for Scotland on the hour. Jovan Kostovski's first international goal appeared to have spoiled the visitors' party, but Maloney sealed a dramatic win at the last.
