Rhodes leads to Scotland win


A first Scotland goal from Jordan Rhodes put Craig Levein's side on their way to a 3-1 win over Australia at Easter Road last night. Rhodes' 29th-minute header cancelled out Mark Bresciano's opener before an own goal by Jason Davidson and a Ross McCormack finish gave Scotland victory.

Wales were beaten 2-0 by Bosnia at a sparsely populated Parc Y Scarlets in Llanelli, Vedad Ibisevic putting the visitors in front in the 21st minute with a tap-in, then Miroslav Stevanovic adding a second just after half time.

Northern Ireland let slip a two-goal lead in a 3-3 home draw with Finland, while a much-changed Republic of Ireland held Serbia 0-0.
