England and Scotland couldn't be separated in the 115th meeting between the two sides at Wembley.

Scotland started the match much the brighter side on Friday night and took the game to England.

But it was the Three Lions who came closest to opening the scoring through Jone Stones, who saw his header hit the post.

Stephen O'Donnell forced a save from Jordan Pickford with a hard-and-low shot, but the Everton shot-stopper was equal to the effort and got down well to his right to save.

In the second half Reece James headed off the line for England after a Lyndon Dykes volley beat Pickford all ends up.

And Che Adams came close to winning it for Scotland as England became sloppier late on.

Here's how our man Simon Mullock rated the performances from Wembley.

PICKFORD: Fine first-half save to thwart O'Donnell but otherwise untroubled. Mark: 6

JAMES: Struggled to get into his usual attacking positions, but one key goalline clearance. Mark: 6.

STONES: England's best defender. Unlucky to hit the post with a towering header. Mark: 7.

MINGS: Should have been the kind of physical battle he craves, but struggled. Mark: 5.

SHAW: Offered a natural outlet down the left but erratic delivery from the fanks. Mark: 5.

PHILLIPS: Was once again England's best midfield performer at both ends of the pitch. Mark: 7.

RICE: Neat and tidy as a midfield screen but needed to move the ball much quicker. Mark: 6.

MOUNT: Poor delivery from set-pieces and in general play but tested Marshall with one drive. Mark: 5

FODEN: Only showed flashes of his talent as England failed to get him on the ball. Subbed. Mark: 6.

KANE: Another sluggish performance will put a question mark against the England captain keeping his place. Subbed. Mark: 5.

STERLING: Started brightly but soon began to disappear in a blanket of blue shirts. Mark: 5.

Subs: Grealish 5 (Foden 63), Rashford 5 (Kane 75).

Subs not used: Maguire, Henderson, Trippier, Ramsdale, Coady, Sancho, Calvert-Lewin, Chilwell, Johnstone, Bellingham.


MARSHALL: Derby's 36-year-old keeper saved well from Mount but not tested enough. Mark: 6.

O'DONNELL: Saw his thumping far-post volley brilliantly saved. Much improved from the opening game. Mark: 6.

HANLEY: Handled Kane with real ease and always offered a threat at set-pieces. Mark: 7.

McTOMINAY: The Lancaster-born midfielder did well playing in an unfamiliar position in a three-man defence. Mark: 6.

TIERNEY: Gave Scotland the defensive stability they lacked in defeat against the Czech Republic. Mark: 8.

ROBERTSON: Kept Foden in check for most of the night but rarely able to spring forward. Mark: 6.

McGREGOR: Never wasted a pass and was a settling influence in the midfield maelstrom. Mark: 6

GILMOUR: This was a big test for the 20-year-old – and he wasn't found wanting. Always demanding the ball. Mark: 6.

McGINN: Always on the move but did himself no favours by getting booked early for dissent. Mark: 6.

ADAMS: Always on the move and in England faces. Had a great early chance blocked by Stones. Mark: 6.

DYKES: Won a succession of aerial duels and denied a goal by James' goalline clearance. Mark: 7.

Subs: Armstrong 5 (Gilmour 75), Nisbet 5 (Adams 86).

Subs not used: Christie, Gordon, Fleck, Cooper, Fraser, McLaughlin, Patterson, Hendry, Forrest, McKenna.

REFEREE: Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz (Spain): 5.

MAN OF THE MATCH: Kieran Tierney (Scotland)
