Scotland's Euro 2012 qualifying campaign ended in disappointment when they lost 3-1 to defending champions Spain in Alicante.

The Scots had to better the result of the Czech Republic to qualify, but the Czechs thrashed Lithuania 4-1.

Boss Craig Levein says he takes a great deal from Scotland's unsuccessful bid to qualify for Euro 2012.

"It doesn't get much harder than playing the European and world champions at their ground," he said.

Elsewhere Wales' Euro 2012 campaign ended in another victory as they beat Bulgaria 1-0 in Sofia.

Northern Ireland were defeated 3-0 by Italy in Pescara.

It wasn't all bad news, The Republic of Ireland managed to clinch a play-off spot, with a 2-1 home win over Armenia.
