Players 'embraced' Peru atmosphere - McLeish

Manager Alex McLeish praised Scotland's seven debutants for coping with the atmosphere and the conditions in a 2-0 defeat to Peru.

The Estadio Nacional de Lima was noisy as the home fans delivered a World Cup send-off to the players, while the temperature was stifling.

McLeish started with four new caps, while three more came off the bench.

"I'm proud of the mentality they showed in a cauldron of a place," he told BBC Scotland, "They embraced it."
