Sergio Ramos, centre, heads his side’s second goal of last night’s friendly match against Wales in Cardiff
A KIERAN Tierney own goal condemned ten-man Scotland to Nations League defeat in Israel.
Against a side ranked 94th in the world, and with just one win in their last ten games, Alex McLeish’s men let a lead slip in a sobering second-half.
The Scots were ahead at the break in Haifa, but eventually conceded twice and had John Souttar sent off.
Scotland looked well on their way to claiming their second win in their League C section when Charlie Mulgrew slammed home from the spot after Steven Naismith had been fouled.
But Dor Peretz and a shanked clearance from Celtic left-back Tierney gave the hosts – who have beaten only Liechtenstein and Andorra at home since 2014 – the win they thoroughly deserved.
Wales endured a chastening return to the Principality Stadium as they were beaten 4-1 by Spain in their friendly encounter.
Paco Alcacer scored two welltaken goals either side of a header from Sergio Ramos, who was left inexplicably unmarked from a free-kick. Marc Bartra glanced in a fourth goal before Sam Vokes notched a late consolation.
