Scotland 0-1 Argentina – Friendly – Highlights

Scotland fell to defeat as Argentina marked Diego Maradona’s first match in charge with victory at Hampden.

Maxi Rodriguez gave the visitors the lead after eight minutes at the end of a superb passing move involving Carlos Tevez and Jonas Gutierrez.

James McFadden came close twice for the Scots before half-time and goalkeeper Juan Pablo Carrizo saved well from the striker early in the second half.

And the home side were unable to find an equaliser in the closing stages.

Argentina dominated the opening stages and captain Javier Mascherano tested goalkeeper Allan McGregor with a powerful swerving volley from 20 yards before Rodriguez opened the scoring.

Tevez’s pass from the right was laid into the path of Rodriguez by Gutierrez and the midfielder took a touch before sliding the ball past McGregor from close range
