Scotland boss pleased with Lithuania performance

Craig Levein was delighted with his Scotland team after they managed to defeat Lithuania 1-0 at Hampden Park last night. The result kept Scotland's Euro2012 qualification hopes alive as it put them within two points of play-off rivals Czech Republic with both sides having two games remaining.

Steven Naismith's 50th minute strike proved to be the difference between Scotland and Lithuania but Levein insisted that his side quite rightly recorded maximum points.

"I was pleased and I think we deserved to win the game," he said.

"But I would rather be in a better position. I go back to Saturday (2-2 draw with Czechs) and I am still angry about that.

"We played a good game and with minutes left we were in the position to win the game and it was taken out of our hands."

Scotland next meet Liechtenstein away on October 8 - one day after Czech Republic take on group leader Spain - before a crunch match with the Spaniards on the 11th, the same day as Czech clash with Lithuania.
