Scotland 1 England 3
Scotland 1 England 3, Celtic Park, International Friendly Match, November 18, 2014. England boss Roy Hodgson was well pleased with the playing performance of his young team following the friendly fixture with Scotland at a full packed Celtic Park. The Three Lions emerged victorious to the tune of a 3-1 score against The Tartan Terriers courtesy of a first-half goal by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and two goals from Wayne Rooney after the break.
Following the confidence-boosting 3-1 win over Scotland in Glasgow, Roy Hodgson decided to pick out Wayne Rooney for some extra special praise. Rooney had been in excellent form and the free-scoring attacker had contributed three goals in his two last matches for England. Although still in his twenties, the meilleur marqueur had so far notched up an impressive total of 45 goals in 101 senior appearances for his country and Hodgson had nothing but praise for the player. Roy Hodgson: “Wayne Rooney has got to be delighted with his few days from Saturday to now; first he picks up his cap and a goal and today he has scored two in a game where we have beaten Scotland away.” Scotland Team: David Marshall, Grant Hanley, Andy Robertson, Russell Martin, Charlie Mulgrew, Steven Whittaker, Scott Brown, Ikechi Anya, Shaun Maloney, Steven Naismith, Chris Martin.
