Scotland had gone ahead twice in the match through James Morrison and Miller himself, but their goals were cancelled out by first Theo Walcott and then Danny Welbeck before debutant Rickie Lambert struck a dream winner.

"We have worked our socks off, given everything we've got, and possibly deserved to get something from the game," Miller told ITV.

"We'll go away and analyse the goals - particularly the second and third goals from set-pieces, we're pretty disappointed with that.

"But overall there's a lot of positives to take from the game.

"If you were to tell us we would come here and lead 1-0 and then 2-1, I think we would have taken that at the start.

"We've come here and put on a decent performance, got two goals at Wembley, but unfortunately it wasn't enough to get anything."

Scotland midfielder Scott Brown reckoned the team gave a good account of themselves in a match both sides were going all out to win.

Brown said: "It was hard work. I think we played really well. And we were obviously devastated to come away with a loss but and the end of the day there are a lot of positives to take.

"Especially in the first half. I think we were the better team. We managed to keep the ball and we created chances as well.

"There's no such thing today as a friendly. I think they knew that and we knew that."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
