Scots style surprises Strachan

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan admitted his team had surprised even him with their performance in a dramatic 2-1 victory over Macedonia on a poor pitch in Skopje.

You look at the surface and think a win would be great.

How do you win? You think a couple of breakaways, you try your best.

But to play like that and get a win, because that's a win and a performance, was terrific - against a side who beat Wales.

The first half we were exceptional and the second half we were good. You expect Macedonia to come back. You expect their manager say things at half-time and they did that, they made it very difficult.

But we still tried to play at all times.


Strachan hands Anya call-up

Watford's Ikechi Anya has won his first Scotland call-up after being named in Gordon Strachan's squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Belgium and Macedonia next month.

The Glasgow-born player can play full-back or wide midfield. Meanwhile, Leeds forward Ross McCormack has secured a recall.

Miller retires from international football

Striker Kenny Miller has retired from international football, the Scottish Football Association has confirmed.

His last match for Scotland was the 3-2 defeat to England - but he scored a cracking goal at Wembley (see video above).
