Scotland 1-3 England: Rooney brace seals comfortable England victory against Scotland at Celtic Park

England striker Wayne Rooney scored twice as the Three Lions coasted to victory against rivals Scotland, reports BBC Sport.

The visitors were on top from kick-off, putting pressure on the Scotland backline, which led to them making errors in possession. While clear cut chances were initially few and far between, it was England who made the decisive breakthrough.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain deftly connected with a pinpoint lofted pass from club teammate Jack Wilshere, steering the ball past David Marshall in goal.

Minutes after the break, the Three Lions doubled their advantage, with Wayne Rooney capitalising from poor defending, to head a rebounded effort into the back of the net.

Scotland pulled a goal back again the run of play late on, with the tireless Andrew Robertson linking up well with substitute Johnny Russell, before finishing low at the near post.

But minutes after having their lead cut in half, England restored the two-goal advantage again, with Adam Lallana squaring a ball in the area for Rooney to score from close range.

It took England’s record to six consecutive wins, while Rooney moves ever closer to topping the all-time scoring charts.
