  1. Goodbye

    FT: Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    So, Scotland's summer tour ends in a 1-0 defeat by Mexico following an open and entertaining game at the famous Azteca Stadium.

    Thanks for your company tonight/this morning - we'll have reaction from the Scotland camp, including video highlights, on our website later.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. 'Drastically different team' in future games

    FT: Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Steven Thompson

    Former Scotland striker on Sportscene

    Quote Message: I think Alex McLeish will be delighted to just get them [Peru and Mexico matches] out of the way. He’s got out of them unscathed; relatively we didn’t take a hiding off either of the teams. He’ll try to find as many positives as he can but the realistic thing is when you come to 15 September, for the Albania game, it’s going to be a drastically drastically different team.
  3. Any positives?

    FT: Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Michael Stewart

    Former Scotland midfielder on Sportscene

    Quote Message: Johnny Russell has done his chances of being involved (in future squads) no harm at all. When you look at that game, he was probably the stand-out performer for Scotland. So there’s a positive there.

  4. 'An eye opener' for Scotland

    FT: Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Steven Thompson

    Former Scotland striker on Sportscene

    Quote Message: Mexico created a lot of big opportunities in the match. The step up in quality was there to see. I think it will be an eye opener for a lot of the squad to have played against an opposition of that quality. They ran themselves into the ground but ultimately Mexico were the better side and deserved to win.

    George Morr: Mexico missed lots of chances at goal. Should have been better than 1-0. Mexico better than Scotland, but Mexico need to improve for the World Cup. Germany, Sweden and South Korea good teams.

    Mike: Russell goes 90 as Scotland lose 1-0 to Mexico. Russell set up probably Scotland's best chance with a nice cross that was headed onto the cross bar.

  6. FULL-TIME Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Stats from the Azteca Stadium
  7. Corona chance, yes another one

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Two Mexican substitutes Corona and dos Santos link up nicely before Corona, again, blasts wide from insisde the Scotland penalty area.

  8. Another Mexico chance

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    It must a second goal for Mexico - how many times have we said that? - but no, Corona fizzes a lob over Scott Bain but Charlie Mulgrew, on the line, heads clear and a 1,074th chance for Mexico is spurned...

  9. Mexican stand-off

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Another cross from Mexico yields another chance and another wild shot high over the bar. This time the feral effort comes from Corona, much to the relief of the peppered Scott Bain in the Scotland goal.

    Not sure you'd want to be sitting directly behind either goal at the Azteca when Mexico are playing - a few lost teeth and mangled fingers among the supporters with all the wild shots raining down on the frazzled supporters...

  10. Scotland chance

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Scotland substitute Chris Cadden has a pop at goal... but it's comfortably gathered by Ochoa. Six minutes plus added time remaining - can Alex McLeish's side find an unlikely equaliser?

  11. Striker swap

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Oli McBurnie, who must be shattered, is replaced by Lewis Morgan with 10 to play.

  12. Get Involved

    James McConnell: It’s frightening the lack of technical ability on show from the Scottish team. #bbcsportscot

  13. Hair today; gone tomorrow...

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Mexico goalkeeper and captain Guillermo Ochoa has been flying through the Azteca air at various stages of this friendly to claim all manner of crosses into the box, sporting a snazzy 80-style perm - reminiscent of Brian May or Rhea Perlman from Cheers.

  14. Fabian rattles one from 30 yards

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Mexican substitute Fabian pings one from 30 yards, but it is no match for Scott Bain who performs a volleyball-like dig high into the air before catching

    Surely there is another goal in this game.

  15. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Mexico have the ball in the net but are denied a second goal by the offside flag after Peralta follows up to fire home after Lozano's header is parried by Scott Bain.

  16. Another Lozano effort

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Lozano can't hit the target from 25 yards, for a change, after some more slick build-up play from Mexico.

    This came just seconds after Shinnie's solo mission was brought to an end when he ran into four Mexican defenders - not ideal.

  17. Johnny Come Lately

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    A great Scotland chance fizzles out as Johnny Russell capitalises on the break of the ball to gallop towards goal, but he stubs his toe - which is always an eye-watering development - and tumbles to the turf allowing Mexico to skelp the ball clear.

  18. Reinforcements arrive in defence

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Willie Miller

    Former Scotland defender on Sportscene

    Quote Message: I think Alex McLeish will be thinking at this stage he would take the result as it stands. Throwing on Charlie Mulgrew just to give the two younger centre-backs a little bit more support. They probably need it at this stage, just that extra body in the penalty box because there's no doubt there's still some defending to do before the final whistle is blown.
  19. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Mexico 1-0 Scotland

    Mexico substitute Fabián rattles the crossbar with the Scotland defence all at sea; the hosts can't believe it. If this game ends with only one goal...

  20. The mask of Zorro...
