He claims he has a good group of players and also have the chance to get the whole three points against England.

“It was a good night, we played well, Clarke said. We were unfairly criticised after the game on Monday; I know I have a good group of players and they showed that tonight, so I’m delighted for my players and staff.

“We had chances to win, England had moments as well, but looking at this you wouldn’t have known which is the favourite which is a credit to us. The most pleasing thing was we played when we had the ball and created a number of chances.”

Clarke on Billy Glimour’s performance.

Chelsea’s player Billy Gilmour appeared in the starting 11 for Scotland for the first time and was outstanding in the game.

He picked up the man of the match in the game and Clarke hails the 20 years old after the game for the performance.

“I’ve said for a long time he’ll be a big part of the future of Scottish football.

“We know what we’ve got in the camp, we’ll try to manage that and keep a lid on things. Performances like that will do him no harm whatsoever.

The Scottish coach also heap praise on Manchester United player Scot McTominay for the strong display.

“Getting Kieran [Tierney] back into the three and Scott [McTominay] gives us the platform to build from the back.

“Billy and Callum are both good footballers, we knew coming here we couldn’t just sit and defend for 95 minutes, we knew when we had the ball, we had to take care of it and try to create our own chances. That’s what we managed to do.”
