Scotland captain Andrew Robertson hopes the country can kick on after beating San Marino at Hampden Park.
The resounding 6-0 victory snapped a four-game losing streak for the Tartan Army.
"Only time will tell but I really hope that now we can kick on from this performance," Liverpool fullback Robertson said.
"I know it's only against San Marino and I'm sure a lot of people - the negative people - will say that but it wasn't about our opponents, it was about how we went about our business and I thought we did it brilliantly.
"When you have a fragile squad and a squad that's low on confidence then it's always tough. Hopefully this result will kick all of us on.
"It's not been easy but we knew we had a chance to put 100 per cent in and put a performance in.
"It didn't matter if it was 1-0 or 6-0. For us it was about the performance."
