Scotland 0-0 Israel (5-3 on pens): Scotland to play Serbia in Euro 2020 play-off final after shootout win

The Scots converted all five of their penalties, with Kenny McLean scoring the winner, after David Marshall saved Eran Zahavi's first spot-kick for Israel.

It ended an evening which had largely lacked quality, but was packed with drama. Scott McTominay should have scored just before half-time when he headed a corner wide when unmarked, while Liam Cooper's header in the final minute of extra time hit the post, but this was a nervous encounter that deserved a shootout to decide it.

Israel failed to create many opportunities to trouble Marshall, but were more than a match for Scotland throughout, and were inches from a winner in extra time when Shon Weissman failed to get a touch on Hatem Elhamed's cross.

Steve Clarke's side will travel to face Serbia on November 12, with the winner earning a place in England's group at Euro 2020 - two of the group matches will be played at Hampden Park. It will be the first play-off final for Scotland since 2003, when the Netherlands won 6-1 over two legs to reach Euro 2004.
