Alex Mc Leish presided over a 3-0 loss in Kazakhstan

McLeish described the 3-0 defeat at the Astana Arena as "horrible", with Scotland 2-0 down inside 10 minutes and unable to recover as they slumped to defeat in their opening European Qualifier.

McLeish said: "We had a lot of young guys winning first caps and early caps".

But with the likes of Allan McGregor, Matt Ritchie, Darren Fletcher and Robert Snodgrass drifting away from the worldwide scene for a variety of reasons and the likes of Steven Fletcher, Steven Naismith and Leigh Griffiths unavailable, many of McLeish's players are having to find their feet on the world stage at the same time. We talked about that because that happened in Israel as well. We never saw it through in reality.
