Scotland ended their FIFA World Cup qualifying Group A campaign on a high as they sank Croatia in Glasgow, though Igor Štimac's men nevertheless finished second in the section. 

Gordon Strachan's side had inflicted a major blow to Croatia's chances of winning the group with their surprise 1-0 victory in Zagreb in June, and the goalscorer that day, Robert Snodgrass, was at it again to put the hosts in front. There were opportunities at both ends as each team threw everything into attack, but Steven Naismith got a second to ensure the Scots completed an unlikely double over the section runners-up.
