Scotland warmed up for the start of their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign with a morale-boosting 3-1 victory against Australia.

Despite going behind to a absolutely fabulous strike from the Socceroos, Scotland fought back with a first goal for scoring superstar Jordan Rhodes to equalize. 

Scotland's second was as bizarre an own goal as you will ever see as the header was pinpoint accuracy into the top corner.

Scotland's third was a great individual goal on 75 minutes by Ross McCormack to round off the scoring.

This result was a great result for the Scots, especially in light of the 22 spot difference in FIFA rankings. Australia currently sit in 24th spot, Scotland in 46th.
