  1. Job well done for Scotland

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Scotland won 1-0 in Hungary

    I know all the talk is of experimenting and finding the right blend in friendlies but delivering a win tonight was important for Alex McLeish, after a meek start against Costa Rica and with three tough games to come before the business gets serious against Israel and Albania in the Nations League.

    The first half was scrappy on a terrible pitch in Budapest and it looked like it might have been one of those nights when Charlie Mulgrew missed from the penalty spot.

    But once Matt Phillips tucked away a tidy goal, Scotland grew in confidence.

    A step in the right direction. Now to build on that promise...

  2. What next for Scotland?

    Scotland have two more friendlies lined up at the end of the domestic season, with a long-haul trip for games against Peru and Mexico, then Belgium come to Hampden in early September.

    Brendan Rodgers has already done some grumbling about the Peru and Mexico fixtures, so we might see the Celtic contingent and a few others excused from summer duties.

  3. McLeish 'did the right thing'

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on BBC Sportsound

    Alex McLeish did the right thing by blooding as many younger players as he could. He stuck with one formation in the two games, he will experiment with other formations in the friendlies to come.

    They are building up to the competitive games.

  6. 'Bardsley back in the frame?'

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Michael Stewart

    Former Scotland midfielder on BBC Sportsound

    When we think about right-backs, and is Callum Paterson defensively minded enough to play there, what about Phil Bardsley?

    He's got another campaign in him. Defensively sound. You could be looking at him in the squad.

  8. Formation to fit Tierney & Robertson?

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Billy Dodds

    Former Scotland striker on Sportsound

    It's a worthwhile experiment with that result, we have to enjoy the moment. That result relieves pressure. We were looking at every angle of that team selection, there were young boys in.

    We had to win the game to take the pressure off. You can understand why Alex McLeish might not want to go to a back four as he would have to drop one of his best players in either Kieran Tierney or Andy Robertson.

    If they're both fit they have to both be in the team.

  9. 'Celtic core remains important'

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Michael Stewart

    Former Scotland midfielder on BBC Sportsound

    We don't need to rip it up and start again - we were unbeaten in 2017, it just didn't fall right.

    The nucleus of the Celtic team is still going to be important. I had a laugh when Alex McLeish was talking about going for a more experienced team tonight - it was pretty marginal! There wasn't much difference in terms of experience from Friday.

  10. 'These games are experimental'

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on BBC Sportsound

    With Scott McKenna and Jack Hendry playing so well, you'd want an experienced player in there too. Charlie Mulgrew is usually reliable in there, he does use the ball well and he has a cool head. Alex McLeish played three at the back quite regularly last time he was in charge. He could still change it.

    These two games are experimental. The next three games, he has the opportunity to play four at the back and I'd like to see him do that to see if the two youngsters can handle that.

    The formation didn't suit Ryan Fraser. He couldn't get forward as often as we'd like to see.

  11. McLeish hails 'massive' victory

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Scotland manager Alex McLeish talking to BBC Scotland: "I was disappointed on Friday, I hate to lose but I have got to say, they continued where they left off. the tempo was tremendous, we had players really confident and using the ball. We had some great performances, every player to a man.

    "You could say it wasn't going to happen for us when we missed the penalty but we were in control of our emotions and they came back. It's massive. It gives them the evidence that they can win a football match.

    "They virtually controlled it. We had one slip, I have nothing but praise for everybody. We played some players with more experience and knowledge of each other.

    "Scott McKenna was amazing tonight, I thought big Jack Hendry was very cool and calm and confident.

    "When I took the job I said I thought we had players with good athleticism and speed, but could we find a system to play with tempo and win the ball back immediately? There was real intensity tonight."

  12. Midfield difference was 'startling'

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Michael Stewart

    Former Scotland midfielder on BBC Sportsound

    Scott McKenna has got something and he's starting to show it. We've been crying out for centre-halves and Jack Hendry was promising too.

    The midfield was the startling difference for me. The guys in there tonight were obvious selections. Look at the difference McGinn, Armstrong and McGregor made.

    But I'm not sure about this formation at all. I don't think three at the back and two up top suits this team.

  13. Adapting to formation will 'take time'

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Scotland midfielder Stuart Armstrong: "Both teams wanted to win, we had some making up to do from Friday, there was lots of aggression in the game. It will take time to get used to a new formation but that's what these friendlies are all about."

  14. 'We played some really good stuff'

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Scotland forward Matt Phillips: "I definitely enjoyed that, we played some really good stuff. You can see the boys gelling. We're delighted to win the game.

    "It's important for us to start winning games. It's a new group, it will take time but there are plenty of positives."

  15. Get Involved - What do you make of Scotland's display?

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Gary Nicolson Hendry & McKenna were class all night but we lacked threat up top again in this formation. 4-3-3 with pace on the wings for me

    falseGraham Watt McKenna; that’s our new cb - solid at the back and has great passing range too, well deserved man of the match

    Bob Barclay A lot of positives from tonight's game

    Steven Lyall Jack Hendry n Scott McKenna excellent in defence

  17. McKenna's rise 'amazing'

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on BBC Sportsound

    I thought Scott McKenna was excellent again, his rise from obscurity has been amazing. He didn't put a foot wrong and showed a lot of maturity. He has been the stand-out find.

    The goal was an excellent team goal and Matt Phillips reacted perfectly. It's a really good night for Scotland, they can take a lot of positives from it.

  18. Cool and calm McKenna

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    "We're getting used to the formation a bit more and hopefully in the summer we carry that on," says man-of-the-match Scott McKenna.

    "They tried to batter us about, but we stood strong.

    "It's a massive achievement for me to be here and I want to stay."

    The 21-year-old Aberdeen defender has looked the part in back-to-back internationals, having made his debut against Costa Rica on Friday.

  19. Positive exercise for Scotland

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Martin Dowden

    BBC Sport Scotland in Budapest

    That was more like it from Scotland, a much better display which had a number of encouraging outcomes.

    Matt Phillips was effective in an unfamiliar striker role and delivered the winner.

    In defence, debutant Jack Hendry was impressive as was Scott McKenna once again. However, there is room for improvement as there were one or two lapses that might have undermined Scotland’s night.

    It has to be said though that Hungary are a poor international side. They were ideal opposition for a Scotland side looking for some momentum.

    It was a useful experience and one which Alex McLeish can learn a great deal from.

  20. A 'comfortable' victory

    FT: Hungary 0-1 Scotland

    Billy Dodds

    Former Scotland striker on Sportsound


    It has been comfortable for Scotland, just the one fright when Charlie Mulgrew lost the ball but you can only beat what is in front of you.
