Make that 2-0. And absolutely fair 

I think the Scottish defence has signed a non aggression pact.

The Ukraine goalkeeper decides to make it a bit more interesting by dropping a clanger with 10 minutes to go.

Scotland 1 Ukraine 2

And then, would you credit it, in the 5th and final minute of added time, another goal !

Well, even before the match some of us were very much hoping that McTominay wouldn't be filling in in central defence in the absence of Tierney.

Final proof negative to Steve Clarke that McTominay is not a central defender? The other two in the back 3, Hanley and Cooper, particularly Hanley, have on the whole been steady for Scotland, but clearly have not been unaccustomed to shipping goals with their club teams.

The clearly better team on the night won. May the best team on the night win in Cardiff on Sunday. Huge game and so important to Wales and Ukraine for very different reasons.

As was to be expected it was a shadow team last night for Wales in Poland in the Nations League. Can Ukraine raise themselves again? They will certainly do their damndest.

Well the best team isn't winning just now.

But after 70 minutes it's somehow Wales 1 Ukraine 0

And Ukraine did run out of puff towards the end in the Scotland game.

 That said Johnson and Bale both had two great chances to make it sure then, Post and good save

Well done, Wales !

Very unlucky for Ukraine. Backed up the Scotland performance four days later and managed to keep it going to the end. Some great blocks by Wales, particularly by Ben Davies.

I think Wales have a real chance of progressing from the group, I would hope England and Wales both get through.

 Och, let's have some fun. It's their final match in the group. Let's have winner goes through to the KO stages, loser goes home  wink

Even better, how about all 4 teams are level on points after 2 games and the winner of USA vs Iran also goes through.
