Scotland secured a seeded spot in the World Cup play-off semi-finals as goals from John Souttar and

Che Adams stunned Denmark with a thrilling performance at Hampden Park.

Steve Clarke’s Group F runners-up needed at least a point against the runaway leaders to give themselves a chance of a home draw.

But centre-half Souttar headed home in his first Scotland game since being sent off in a 2018 defeat by Israel and striker Adams
burst clear to settle growing nerves after 86 minutes.
Scotland had lived dangerously in the closing stages before that breakaway goal secured a sixth competitive victory in succession for the
first time since winning six Home Nations matches in a row between March 1928 and February 1930.

 Ended Denmark’s six-game winning run since losing 2-1 to England at the semi-final stage of the Euro 2020 finals this summer and

ensured they fell short of ending their qualification campaign with a 100% record.

Scotland started with real intent as, spurred on by a sea of noise from the packed stands.

However, Denmark survived the early pressure to create the first chance after 10 minutes and remind Scotland of their threat.

Midfielder Daniel Wass could only knock Rasmus Kristensen’s cross wide off his hip from close range before centre-half

Andreas Christensen sent a thundering drive just over from 25 yards.

It took Scotland 23 minutes to fashion their first clear sight at goal as Adams’ low drive was denied by

a superb Kasper Schmeichel stop,  the goalkeeper sending out a telescopic leg to turn the striker’s effort wide.

John Souttar made a scoring return to the Scotland side after a three-year absence.

Che Adams worked tirelessly up front and came close

a couple of times before being rewarded with his goal.
