A mixed bag for new boss in March
Alex McLeish takes charge of his first game as scotland boss; Craig Beattie scores the winner against Georgia; Luca Toni scores twice in Italy's win
Scotland 2-1 Georgia
Alex McLeish, appointed in January as Walter Smith's successor, takes charge for the first time and substitute Craig Beattie scores the winner in the 88th minute.

However, McLeish then sounds a note of warning that "we have to keep our feet on the ground". And four days later Scotland come crashing down to earth.

Italy 2-0 Scotland
Scotland fall to two Luca Toni headers - but they stay top of Group B, albeit in a three-way tie with Ukraine and France.

Ominously, World Cup winners Italy are now just a point behind.
