England continued their dominance over Scotland with a comfortable 3-1 victory at Hampden Park in a friendly match to commemorate the 150th anniversary of their first meeting.
Despite Scotland’s impressive form in their last five matches, they failed to hit the same heights as England took control of the game. Phil Foden opened the scoring for England, diverting Kyle Walker’s cross into the net before Jude Bellingham fired in a second before half-time after Andrew Robertson’s error.
Harry Maguire’s own goal gave Scotland some hope in the second half, but Harry Kane’s lovely finish from a sublime Bellingham assist wrapped up the win for Gareth Southgate’s side.
Scotland last won this fixture in 1999, and hopes of another win looked faint from kick-off as they struggled to cope with their rivals’ dominance. England, on the other hand, were looking to recover from their frustrating draw with Ukraine and will be pleased with their performance.
The victory marks England’s continued dominance over Scotland, who have failed to beat their rivals since 1999. However, both teams will now turn their attention to Euro 2024 qualification, with Scotland hoping to continue their impressive form and England looking to build on their recent performances.
