Denmark vs Scotland live reaction as Steve Clarke’s shorthand Scots gave a hard lesson in Copenhagen

By man

Our man David Friel ranks Scotland’s players tonight.

Craig Gordon: Returned to No. 1 four years later as a backup and took the ball out of the net twice in the first 15 minutes. After that he saved a lot and kept Thomas Delaney’s drive out. 6.

Grant Henley: The pair of early interceptors were as guilty as the rest of the defense in the early but second goal of Denmark. Involved in one scrap and widened in the other half. 5.

Liam Cooper: The captain of Leeds United was the middle man of the previous three but often went too far in the early stages. Dennis pressed well but returning the ball was not the answer. 5.

Scott McKenna: Normally lousy challenges but he didn’t look comfortable when Dennis pressed him. At this level the ball needs to be used very well. Subdue at the break of the London Dykes. 4.

Andy Robertson: The Scottish captain turned right for the first half and had a tough time against the dynamic Danes. Moved a little further in the second half but a disappointing night. 5.

Billy Glamor: Extraordinarily easily removed the ball in the first half. After the break, he was unlucky with a low shot and came into the game a lot when he was transferred to the holding roll. 6.

Kenny McLean: Missed Euro due to injury but returned to the role of midfield anchor. Couldn’t go in the first half but the Norwich City man scored some good runs after the break. 5.

Callum McGregor: Tried to calm down after the storm started. The Celtic captain was constantly demanding more bravery on the ball and at least tested Caspar Schmeichel with a low shot in the second half. 6.

Karen Terni: There was a switch off for the opener because he allowed Daniel Vass to make a run on him in the previous post. His usual run never ran to the left because he was overtaken by Denmark. 5.

Ryan Fraser: Didn’t make an impact as No. 10 in the first half and then moved to the right for the second 45. Such an unfortunate low shot that forced Schmeichel to save brilliantly. 5.

CHE ADAMS: From the beginning Dykes preferred and showed up for the ball but he was opening the scrap. It was nice to play with a teammate after the break, but it didn’t smell good to Denmark captain Simon Kager. 5.

Green: The London Dykes (4) won some of the attack on the supply of some muscle and some on the skies, but the Danes put it all together. Ryan Christie (3) Midfielder won his first Scotland cap as a Bournemouth player but could not make an impact. DAVID TURNBULL (2) For the last five minutes.
