Internationals: Chilwell scores first England goal, Broja on target and important wins for Christensen and Gilmour

That leaves them seven points clear at the top of their group after Scotland recorded a last-gasp win over Israel to leapfrog their opponents into second spot, which would provide a place in the World Cup qualification play-offs.

That proved to be far from an easy task, though, as despite another impressive performance from the young Gilmour at this level, they twice found themselves behind after conceding the opening goal just five minutes in. There was an additional blow as the Tartan Army missed a penalty in first-half injury time to go in at the break 2-1 down.

However, a dramatic comeback saw them recover to win 3-2 thanks to a goal bundled over the line in the fourth minute of added time, with Gilmour making way shortly afterwards as Scotland ran down the clock in the final seconds. They now know victories over Moldova and the Faroe Islands in their last two games will guarantee them a place in the play-offs.
