On Friday night, Scotland put in a fine performance to earn a 0-0 draw against old rivals England in Group D at Wembley.
Steve Clarke’s side were the better team in London and might have snuck a win with some better finishing.
In the other Group D game, Croatia and Czech Republic drew 1-1 at Hampden Park, with Patrik Schick’s penalty cancelled out by Ivan Perisic’s fine goal.
Emil Forsberg’s second-half penalty for Sweden ensure they took a huge step towards the next stage as they top Group E on four points.
