John McGinn – 5
There’s no doubting McGinn will be a big player for Scotland, but he was disappointing last night. He rarely got on the ball and when he did he struggled to do anything of note with it. It’s not yet a certainty that he’s a Scotland starter.
Jamie Murphy – 5
Murphy was the victim of a lack of quality going forward for Scotland on the night. He rarely got the ball to feet and that’s no use to a player of his standard. He’s played well for Rangers in the second half of the season and that should continue so this won’t be his last chance in a Tartan Army jersey.
Matt Phillips – 6
McLeish obviously fancies Phillips as a striker – and that was vindicated with his performance and winning goal in the win over Hungary in March. It didn’t work out against Peru. Phillips put himself about against a physical Peruvian defence, but he was unable to threaten the goalkeeper and that’s what he’ll be judged on.
Graeme Shinnie – 3
Shinnie got just 14 minutes of the game and hardly any opportunity to impress. He’ll hope to get a chance for longer against Mexico on Saturday.
Chris Cadden – 2
Congratulations to Cadden on his debut. He got three minutes and will hope he can build on that going forward.
Callum Paterson – 5
Paterson always gets involved in something good – and he very nearly set up a goal with a superb cross for Oli McBurnie, who failed to get a clean connection when well placed in the box. He plays as an attacking midfielder for Cardiff, but continues as a right back for Scotland and there must be question marks over that given his form for his club.
Oli McBurnie – 4
McBurnie failed to get anything going despite being handed 27 minutes by McLeish. He could really do with an international goal soon, which will no doubt help him going into the competitive games and competing with Leigh Griffiths for a starting spot.
Lewis Morgan – 5
Morgan had one brilliant run that led to that McBurnie half chance and the rest of his late 18-minute cameo was fairly impressive. Now he’s at Celtic, the former St Mirren man should get more international opportunities and those will be deserved based on how he played against Peru. One of a few positives for Scotland.
