Was the result fair?
Having been in front twice, Scotland are bound to feel a little hard done by. They may even believe that they were deserving of a draw. However, the fact is that for all of Scotland's desire, England were the more creative force over the course of the 90 minutes. For that reason alone, England can just about be regarded as the rightful victors.
For the opening 20 minutes, Roy Hodgson's side were below par. They were wasteful in possession and failed to cope with the urgency from the Scots. After that, though, they started to knock the ball around with some authority and created a handful of chances. Having said that, they will need to start much stronger during next month's World Cup qualifiers.
There is no need for Gordon Strachan to be too despondent this evening because for large parts of the encounter, his side competed well. During the first half in particular they played some very good football, with Shaun Maloney standing out in particular. What will annoy the Scotland boss is the fact that two of the goals that his side conceded were from set piece situations, rather than them being outclassed by some neat football.
England vs. Scotland was always going to be a fiery affair and so it proved from the early moments when a series of tackles flew in. Credit to Felix Brych, who allowed the game to flow and refused to dish out early bookings. He was left with no choice during the second half when some late challenges were made. The German deserves some praise for the fact that the match was such a spectacle.
Sports Mole's man of the match
Kenny Miller: The likes of Welbeck could quite rightly claim that he was deserving of this award, but we are plumping for veteran Scottish striker Miller. His selection raised a few eyebrows, but from the first whistle he was lively and ended up being a real nuisance to Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill. He turned the latter of those two England defenders beautifully early in the second half to create his goalscoring chance.
No contest where this one is concerned, it has to go to Hart. Granted Morrison's shot did fly through a host of bodies, but we are talking about someone that is regarded as one of the world's best goalkeepers. The ball was struck straight at Hart, who seemed to get his body out the way as it clattered off him and landed in the net. That's one the Manchester City man will want to forget quickly.
England: Next up for the Three Lions is a World Cup qualifier against Moldova at Wembley on Friday, September 6.
Scotland: Strachan's men will now take on the emerging Belgium on the same evening.
