  Euro 2004: Scotland and Wales out
Updated 19 November 2003, 22.21
Scotland look upset after Holland score another goal
Scotland and Wales were both knocked out of Euro 2004 in Wednesday night's play-offs.

The Scottish squad were thrashed 6-0 by Holland in Amsterdam, crippled by a hat-trick from Manchester United player Ruud Van Nistelrooy.

And Wales had their dreams dashed by a first half header from Vadim Evseev. He knocked in a Rolan Gusev free-kick on 22 minutes.

This gave Russia a 1-0 lead which they defended confidently.

Tough battle

Ryan Giggs goes for the ball
This didn't stop Wales batting hard throughout the rest of the match and clear chances fell to John Hartson, Ryan Giggs and Gary Speed.

But none of these chances were turned into goals, and it looks like Wales' 45-year wait to qualify for a major championship will get longer.

Worst defeat in decades

Scotland are also devastated after suffering their worst defeat in 42 years.

Dutch players celebrate another goal
They had travelled to the Amsterdam Arena with high hopes following their 1-0 first-leg win on Saturday.

But Lee Wilkie summed up feelings from the Scottish side: "It doesn't matter who you concede six goals against it is embarrassing and it gets to you," he said.
