England have beaten Scotland 3-1 on the 150th anniversary of the fixture between the two oldest international rivals in the game.
Goals from Phil Foden, Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane gave the Three Lions the bragging rights at Glasgow’s Hampden Park.
Scotland netted through an own goal by Harry Maguire but were left disappointed in a game that was far from a friendly in nature.
Before kick-off, Scottish fans booed England as they sang God Save The King. The Tartan Army then bellowed their own anthem, Flower Of Scotland.
There was a moment’s silence for as a mark of respect for late Scotland manager Craig Brown and those affected by the events in Morocco and Libya – though jeers were heard from sections of the stadium.
The 116th edition of the fixture ended in defeat for the Scots and tarnished their five match winning streak.
And Norway’s win over Georgia in their group means they have not guaranteed their place at next summer’s Euros.
Meanwhile England celebrated their 49th win in the fixture with a dominant display – Scotland failed to register a shot on target.
They haven’t lost in the fixture since 1999.
England boss Gareth Southgate said his team had been “playing pretty well” adding that they showed “a really good performance tonight”.
Scottish coach Steve Clarke remarked on the rivalry with the “Auld Enemy” but admitted “on the night England were better”.
Clarke said: “It would have been nice to get a positive result against England to make it even better but the objective of what we came in to do has been done.
“Sometimes you need to take your medicine in football and we will take our medicine and try to improve.”
A fixture for the ages
Both teams first met on the pitch in November 1872 at Hamilton Crescent in Glasgow to an audience of 4,000.
The match ended in an underwhelming 0-0 draw.
Names including forward Charles Morice and captain Cuthbert Ottaway wore white that afternoon, while in the blue of Scotland were the likes of Jerry Weir and Billy MacKinnon.
Drawn illustrations gave the story of the game that day.
The two would clash more than 100 times with notable matches including a 5-1 win for Scotland over England in 1928 and retaliation in 1961 when England thrashed their rivals 9-3.
In recent years, England have come out on top with a 3-0 win in a 2018 World Cup qualifier including a trio of headed goals being a standout game.
