Kenny Miller's second-half strike cancelled out Fredi Bobic's opener as Scotland earned an encouraging 1-1 draw with Germany at Hampden.
The result was the most impressive yet achieved by the Scots under Berti Vogts, who had been desperate to avoid defeat by the nation he managed for
Germany had led at the break when Bobic headed in Torsten Frings' right-wing cross in the 23rd minute.
The goal was tough on Scotland, who had made a strong start in front of a passionate Hampden crowd, without really creating any clear-cut scoring
But the visitors could have doubled their advantage just before the break when Rab Douglas had to dive to his left to tip a curling 25-yard effort
from Bernd Schneider round a post.
Colin Cameron could have grabbed an equaliser soon after the restart but the midfielder scuffed harmlessly wide from right in front of goal 10 yards
But Vogts' side did draw level in the 69th minute when Cameron played a quick free-kick to Miller and the Wolves ace rolled a shot across Oliver Kahn
and into the net.
Douglas pulled off a wonder save to deny Schneider from a free-kick and Arne Friedrich blazed well over from the resulting corner, but Scotland held
on to claim a deserved share of the spoils.
The result sees Scotland go second in Euro 2004 qualifying group five, level on eight points along with the World Cup finalists, who have played one
Well scotland have put themselves in with a good chance of qualifing..A ggod point earned today..
