Scott played 56 minutes for Roy Hodgson's team as England secured a 1-0 win in Norway courtesy of an Ashley Young goal early in the game.

Bulgaria inflicted a surprise 2-1 defeat on the Netherlands in Amsterdam, with Rafa playing 64 minutes of the match. Robin Van Persie gave the home side the lead before van der Vaart conceded a penalty for handball which was duly scored, and the Bulgarians scored again in the dying seconds to secure victory.

In Germany, Sandro played 85 minutes of Brazil's 3-1 win over Denmark with the midfielder putting in a typically energetic shift.
