  • That is it, Scotland win 1-0 thanks to Charlie Mulgrew's first-half strike. The Gordon Strachan era begins in encouraging fashion, with Wales to follow nest month. Thanks for looking in.

  • Snodgrass dances past a defender as Scotland press in stoppage time, but they have not tested estonia's keeper that much in the second half for all their possession.

    90+2
  • Good strength from Rhodes finds Commins, but he lashes the shot high & wide.

    90
  • Similarly good work from Hutton on the right, flicking the ball to Snodgrass but again the chance for the killer goal goes away.

    89
  • Miller ghosts into the box and finds Rhodes, but the ball is under the striker's feet and he cannot shoot. Nice run from the Vancouver Whitecaps man.

    88
  • A loose pass from McGregor goes to Kams, but Estonia cannot make anything of the gift the Scottish keeper presented them with.

    86
  • Estonia knocking the ball around with the confidence Scotland had at the start, who need another goal to kill this one off.

    85
  • Purje beats Scotland's attempts to spring the offside trap, but he makes a hash of the shot, which flies off towards the touchline.

    83
  • Berra fails to deal with the free kick, his header lands with Kams but his first-time shot flies wide.

    82
  • Webster booked for a poor, late tackle on Purje.

    81
  • Rhodes is flagged for offside - only just.

    80
  • Miller's pass towards the lurking Rhodes is cut out at the last second - Scotland's subs have lloked good since coming on, so they may be giving Strachan something to think about for the World Cup games coming up.

    79
  • A low cross from the right forces McGregor to race off his line to dive on the ball, snuffing out any threat - which there has not been much of tonight.

    78
  • Snodgrass takes it, but lifts the ball harmlessly over Pareiko's bar with a poor effort.

    77
  • Commons' first action is to win a free kick, dead centre, just in front of the 'D' of the Estonia area.

    76
  • Kris Commons replaces Steven Naismith.

    74
  • Commons is getting ready to come on as Strachan shuffles his pack once more.

    73
  • Mulgrew is a nuisance at the resulting corner, but Estonia can clear. It's still only a narrow lead, and as much as he wants to assess players Gordon Strachan will be desperate for this to end in a win so Scotland could do with finishing this off.

    71
  • Mulgre is determined to get a second, forcing the Estonian keeper to tip over a rising first-time shot from just outside the area.

    70
  • Vassiljev's effort bounces up off the turf but Mcgregor collects with confidence.
