Scotland player ratings
Marks out of 10 for the Scotland players in the Euro 2004 play-off second leg against Holland.

Rab Douglas: Could do little about Wesley Sneijder's opener while he was left exposed by poor marking for the second and third goals.


Jackie McNamara: Gave the free-kick away which led to Holland's second and struggled to keep Marc Overmars quiet on the right.


Gary Naysmith: Struggled against Van der Meyde and a determined Dutch side before coming off at half-time after picking up a knock.


Steven Pressley: Picked up an early booking and things did not get much better as his marking, along with that of Wilkie, left a lot to be desired.


Lee Wilkie: Also to blame, along with Pressley, for the two first-half goals conceded from set pieces while headers at the other end could have been more telling.


Barry Ferguson: An early yellow card set the tone for a disappointing display as he could do little to break Holland's domination in central midfield.


Darren Fletcher: He failed to have the same impact as in the first leg and struggled to impose kind of presence in midfield.


Gavin Rae: He was briefly effective going forward when he switched to the right of midfield but his threat quickly petered out and he had little impact.


Neil McCann: Allowed Holland too much space on the Scottish left and he was turned too easily by Sneijder before the Dutchman's opener.


James McFadden: Tried to spark some creativity and attacking threat into the Scotland side but he was quickly snuffed out by the Dutch defence.


Paul Dickov: Full of running chasing lost causes but he did not really possess the quality to trouble the home defence.


Substitutes

Stevie Crawford (replaced Paul Dickov) Scotland struggled to muster any kind of attack against a rampant Holland and he had little time on the ball.


Maurice Ross: (replaced Gary Naysmith) He took over the duties of marking Overmars after the interval but had little success as part of an overrun defence.


Kenny Miller: (replaced Neil McCann) Came on as manager Berti Vogts tried to earn some consolation for Scotland but the visitors were then into a damage limitation exercise.
