MOST COMMENTED

Scotland beat France for the second time in European Championship qualifying with a stunning 1-0 win Wednesday night in Paris.

James McFadden's spectacular second-half winner decided the game to the delight of the visiting Scottish supporters.

"It was one of the greatest and one of the most important goals of Scottish football," said Coach Alex McLeish. "It needed the passion Scottish teams always have. ...It was very difficult to get this result. We needed a special performance and the players have shown fantastic confidence."

France coach Raymond Domench wasn't so impressed with the Scots.

"It's hard to do better than that, scoring off your only shot," he said.

The result sent the Scots to the top of Group B and dropped France to third place behind Italy, a 2-1 winner over Ukraine in Kiev.

Other key results:

England picked up its second 3-0 victory in four days, beating Russia at Wembley thanks to a strong game from the makeshift frontline of Emile Heskey and Michael Owen, who scored twice.

The Czech Republic's 1-0 win over Ireland all but ended the suspense in Group D, where leader Germany and the Czechs have a nice cushion with a pair of double fixture dates left on the Euro qualifying calendar.

Poland and Finland remained 1-2 in Group A after their 0-0 tie in Helsinki. Portugal and Serbia tied, 1-1, in an ill-tempered affair in Lisbon.
