Gordon Strachan praises 'hard-working' Scotland

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan draws positives from his side's 2-2 draw with Nigeria.

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan has praised his side's work-rate following their 2-2 draw against Nigeria in Wednesday evening's friendly fixture.

The former Middlesbrough boss admitted that some of his players looked rusty on the night, but insisted that they could have won the match.

"We've had three days' hard work and we were one pass away from another three or four goals. Some of these guys haven't played in weeks and I think you could see that in a few of the final balls," he told BBC Sport.

"I've got a squad in there where every one of them wants the others to do well."

The Scots were denied victory by a 90th-minute equaliser from substitute Nwofor Uche.
