Steve Clarke’s Scotland side secured a historic 2-0 win over Spain in their Euro 2024 qualifier on Tuesday.
Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay scored twice on the night to help the hosts record the crucial win and go top their qualifying group.
It was a night to forget for the visitors, particularly Spurs full-back Pedro Porro, as they fell to defeat at Hampden Park.
And so, here, Sportsmail have taken a look at the performances from both sets of players after a hectic night of international football.
Scott McTominay scored a brace for Scotland as they secured a 2-0 win over Spain on Tuesday
Angus Gunn – Busier than on his debut against Cyprus but another clean sheet for the assured-looking Norwich City keeper. 8.5
Ryan Porteous – Out-jumped by Joselu when Spain striker hit the bar but a fine performance overall from the Watford defender. 8.5
Grant Hanley – Playing in the centre of a three, Hanley coped well during the periods when the Scottish goal was under siege. 8.5
Kieran Tierney – Solid in defence, a wonderful lung-bursting run by the Arsenal defender set up McTominay’s second goal. 8.5
Aaron Hickey – One ropey pass back to Gunn bemused the Scotland keeper but another impressive performance. 8.5
Scott McTominay – Manchester United midfielder capped a glorious display in midfield with two goals to make it four in two games. 9
The Manchester United midfielder has now scored four goals in his last two Scotland caps
Callum McGregor – Celtic captain put in his usual terrific, tireless shift in the centre of midfield against top-quality players. 8.5
Andy Robertson – In a fine showing, the Scotland captain set up McTominay’s opener. Booked for a sly dig at Porro. 8.5
John McGinn – Impressive midfielder was unable to add to his remarkable goal record but saw a free-kick bounce off the bar. 8.5
Ryan Christie – Injected pace and danger to the Scotland attack. Missed a great first-half chance when he fired wide. 8.5
Lyndon Dykes – Battled well in the air and put in a superb shift. Missed a great chance before half-time. Booked for a stray elbow in first half. 8.5
MANAGER: Steve Clarke
Biggest Hampden scalp for Scotland since beating France here in 2006. 9
McLean (Christie 75), Cooper (Tierney 76), Patterson (Hickey 82), Ferguson (McGinn 83), Shankland (Dykes 89).
The win has helped lift Steve Clarke’s Scotland side top of their Euro 2024 qualifying group
Kepa Arrizabalaga – Chelsea keeper was deceived by a deflection at McTominay’s first and had no chance with his second. 7
Pedro Porro – Slipped for Scotland’s opener, then descended into a pantomime villain due to his theatrics. Hooked at the break. 3
David Garcia – Centre-back was in a fierce duel with Dykes and took a crack to his jaw from the Scotland forward. 6.5
Inigo Martinez – Athletic Bilbao defender got a vital touch on McTominay’s shot to divert it past Arrizabalaga for the opening goal. 6
Jose Gaya – The Valencia captain put in a decent performance on the left-hand side of the Spain defence. Was an attacking threat. 6.5
Mikel Merino – The Real Sociedad midfielder struggled to make an impact and was replaced before the hour mark by Aspas. 5.5
Tottenham full-back Pedro Porro endured a ropey first-half and was subbed at the break
Rodri – Manchester City star saw a header dip onto the roof of the Scotland net but was not at his best in the engine room. 6.5
Yeremy Pino – Unable to make a mark on the game, the Villarreal winger took out his frustration by shoving Porteous. 6
Dani Ceballos – Showed flashes of class. The Real Madrid star is a lock-picker of the highest quality but this was not his night. 7
Mikel Oyarzabal – The Real Sociedad winger could not get a grip of the game and was replaced at the break. Struggled badly. 5
Joselu – Veteran striker saw a header crash back off the crossbar. Another Spain player fond of a dramatic dive. Rattled too easily. 6
Manager: Luis de la Fuente
Made eight changes from the 3-0 win over Norway and it backfired. 5
Williams (Oyarzabal 46), Carvajal (Porro 46), Aspas (Merino 57), Iglesias (Joselu 67), Gavi (Ceballos 79).
Booked: Carvajal, Aspas.
Spain’s starting line-up on the night had eight chances from their previous outing last week
