World Cup Qualifier Lithuania 0-3 Scotland

BBC REPORT: Scotland breathed fresh life into their World Cup qualifying campaign with a convincing win away to Lithuania.

There had been chances missed at both ends by the time Stuart Armstrong rose to head the visitors into a deserved lead after 25 minutes.

It wasn’t long before Andrew Robertson topped that with a sublime looping drive from just outside the box.

Scotland’s pace and control dropped after the break, but James McArthur prodded in a third to settle the game.

The win moves Gordon Strachan’s side ahead of Slovenia, who lost 1-0 away to Slovakia, into third place in Group F on goal difference.

But they remain four points adrift of the second-top Slovaks thanks to an Adam Nemec goal nine minutes from time in Trnva, while England retain their two-point cushion at the top after their 4-0 win in Malta.
