With Five minutes gone, Leighton Baines put in a cross, which Wayne Rooney did not side foot properly and it went wide.
Scotland took the lead in the 10th minute. From a corner kick the ball fell to James Morrison, who’s shot went through a sea of bodies and beat the England keeper, Joe Hart. Hart will be disappointed that he did not push the shot round the post. He got his hand on the ball but it hit his elbow and went in.
Two minutes later England drew level. Walcott ran onto a wonderful pass from Cleverley, which caught the Scottish defense square. He composed himself and shot low past Allan McGregor.
In the 32nd minute Wayne Rooney saw his shot go just wide of the post.
Scotland regained the lead 3 minutes after the break. Allan Hutton’s cross was chested down by Kenny Miller; he turned Gary Cahill and hit a shot, which went in the bottom right hand corner of Hart’s goal.
Four minutes later England drew level. A Steven Gerrard free kick floated into the box was headed in by Danny Welbeck. The Scotland marking was atrocious.
Midway through the second half England took the lead. Ricky Lambert, who came on as a substitute for Rooney, for his debut, scored with his first touch, with a bullet of a header from a corner, which flew past McGregor. Lambert should have finished the game off in stoppage time but his shot hit the post and rebounded into play.
All in all, it was a useful exercise for both teams as Scotland at times took the game to England. Some people hope that this becomes a regular fixture in the football calendar.
