Well I have to admit I wasn't expecting it.

A long string of crap Hampden friendly results, with no wins dating back to 1996, didn't fill me with too much optimism, but Scott Brown's loan goal of the game saw Scotland defeat the Czech Republic 1-0 at Hampden tonight, in a game which was a precursor to the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign against the Czechs.

In Craig Levein's first game in charge as new Scotland boss, it was a good result, if not a dominating and hope inducing performance. It's the results that count after all!

The Czechs were the better side for much of the match but were kept out.

I'm not quite sure how much we can take from the match, as both sides were clearly not wanting to show their hands too far in advance of the serious qualifying business ahead.

Still, it's a promising start but we have a long way to go. Hopefully the sole striker will not be a feature of the Levein era and a more attacking and less timid side will have the Tartan Army restore the Hampden Roar once again.

I guess only time will tell.
