Hammer goal not enough for Scotland

A late goal by Hammer Robert Snodgrass was not enough for Scotland to achieve World Cup qualification for Russia.

Substitute Snodgrass turned home Darren Fletcher’s cross in the 87th minute and although Slovenia’s Bostjan Cesar was sent off in the closing stages, Scotland could not find a winner.

Scotland’s hopes of reaching the World Cup finals for the first time in 20 years were dashed in Ljubljana, with Slovakia snatching the play-off place on goal difference with a 3-0 win against Malta.
