JOE HART: Should have done better with James Morrison's shot on a wet surface but could do nothing about Kenny Miller's strike. 5/10

KYLE WALKER: Was kept busy by Robert Snodgrass, limiting his forays forward. Booked for a cynical challenge on James Forrest. 5

LEIGHTON BAINES: Had little to do defensively and seemed a little unnerved by the amount of space available to him. Provided the corner for Rickie Lambert's winner. 6

STEVEN GERRARD: Lax in possession at times, but also showed moments of quality as he sat deep, allowing his midfield colleagues to push forward. 6

GARY CAHILL: Allowed Miller too much space to turn as Scotland went in front for a second time. 5

PHIL JAGIELKA: A composed showing from the Everton defender, who had little to do. 6

THEO WALCOTT: Pounced when presented with an opportunity to show his pace and finished well for his fifth international goal. 7

JACK WILSHERE: Full of running. Appeared to be a constant presence in attack and defence. Made way at half-time. 7

DANNY WELBECK: A continual threat with his pace and power. Headed in Gerrard's free-kick unmarked for a deserved goal. 8

WAYNE ROONEY: Determined to prove his worth and even put the ball in the net when incorrectly ruled offside. An enthusiastic display from a man short of match fitness. 7

TOM CLEVERLEY: Struggled to unlock the Scotland defence until he found Walcott with a scything pass for the equaliser. 6


FRANK LAMPARD (on for Wilshere, half-time): Saw a trademark shot from the edge of the area stopped. Booked for foul on Shaun Maloney. 6

ALEX OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN (on for Gerrard, 62 minutes): Played in a floating left-sided position to little effect, bar one lofted pass towards Wilfred Zaha. 5.

JAMES MILNER (on for Cleverly, 67): Was unable to spark the game into life. 5

RICKIE LAMBERT (on for Rooney, 67): Scored three minutes into his debut with a powerful header from a corner. Hit the post in added time from a Zaha cross. 7

WILFRED ZAHA (on for Walcott, 75): Shot wide across goal when found by Oxlade-Chamberlain and saw Lambert hit the woodwork from his cross. 6

PHIL JONES (on for Jagielka, 84): Not enough time to make an impact. 5


ALLAN McGREGOR: Could do little about the goals and saved well from a Rooney header soon after Miller had given Scotland the lead for the second time. 7

ALAN HUTTON: Had his hands full in direct opposition to Welbeck. On one of his few dashes forward, provided a neat pass for Miller to score. 6

STEVEN WHITTAKER: Wrong-footed by Walcott for the goal, having subdued the Arsenal forward until then. Shot over late on. 5

RUSSELL MARTIN: Blocked from Cleverley in the first half but lost Welbeck for England's second equaliser. 5

GRANT HANLEY: The Blackburn defender was combative but was fortunate not to be punished for allowing Rooney space. 5

SHAUN MALONEY: The Wigan playmaker had a largely defensive role, harassing Gerrard and Wilshere, as he had limited chances to get on the ball. 6

JAMES MORRISON: The Darlington-born former England Under-20s man took his opportunity when England failed to clear a corner and blasted in a swerving shot. 7

SCOTT BROWN: Industrious, energetic and a nuisance, but the Celtic captain's influence waned as the match wore on. 7

KENNY MILLER: The Vancouver Whitecaps forward ploughed a lone furrow up front and was rewarded with a well-taken goal on the turn. 7

ROBERT SNODGRASS: Energetic display down the left from the Norwich forward, who kept Walker occupied. 7

JAMES FORREST: A useful outlet down the right, but often pulled into midfield to help out, giving Baines the opportunity to go forward. 6


CRAIG CONWAY (on for Forrest, 67): Was a peripheral figure in the final third of the match as Scotland chased the game. 5

CHARLIE MULGREW (on for Snodgrass, 67): Like Conway, struggled to get into the game as substitutions contributed to it becoming disjointed. 5

LEIGH GRIFFITHS (on for Miller, 72): The Wolves striker spent his 18 minutes on the field chasing the ball as England kept possession. 5

JORDAN RHODES (on for Morrison, 82): His inclusion meant Scotland had two strikers on the field, but neither received the service in the closing stages. 5

STEVEN NAISMITH (on for Maloney, 86): Not enough time to make an impact. 5
