Watch: Gordon Strachan Refuses To Rule Out Leaving Scotland Job After World Cup Woe

Plenty of Scotland fans are in agreement with Chris Sutton's concise verdict of their qualification campaign

The Slovaks had Robert Mak sent off early on in their World Cup qualifier at Hampden and lost 1-0 to the Scots.

Thoughts on Scotland chances of reaching the World Cup?

Slovenia were beaten 1-0 at Wembley with a late Harry Kane goal and the combination of these two results in Group F was exactly what Irish fans were looking for tonight.

Victory will guarantee them second spot and should be enough to book a slot in the play-offs.

Slovenia can only move up to second with a win if Slovakia slip up at home.

'It just shows that was the right way to do it when we scored in the 89th minute.

After 18 minutes, Dubravka made an excellent save from Christophe Berra's header.

The Celtic midfielder remained on the bench as Scotland found a late victor to beat Slovakia and still awaits his first senior global cap.

But Gordon Strachan's side refused to lie down and got the victor with two minutes left on the clock.

Despite their man advantage, Scotland, wearing pink, could not force a breakthrough, with Dubravka making impressive saves from Leigh Griffiths either side of half-time.

Scotland tried to force the pace at the start of the second half.

On 59 minutes Gordon was required again to keep it level and keep alive World Cup dreams. I needed three or four stitches and some glue.

The 34-year-old's form for Scotland since his comeback from injury in 2014 has been impressive, with seven clean sheets in the ten games he has played in that period to firmly re-establish himself as the country's number one keeper.

"There was no doubt about the Man of the Match and it was their goalkeeper who was magnificent - and the crossbar was good as well".

Sub Ikechi Anya found space on the right, his low ball to the near post was aimed for Martin who slid in alongside Skrtel, the Slovakian defender got to the ball first but turned it in at the front post to cue bedlam inside Hampden.

James McArthur replaced Fletcher and Anya came on for Tierney for the final 10 minutes.

Subs: Vladimir Weiss for Adam Nemec 78, Ondrej Duda for Marek Hamsik 79 and Norbert Gyomber for Juraj Kucka 79.
