England centre-back John Stones was the unlikely source of the best goalscoring opportunity during the early period of tonight's game against Scotland.
The Manchester City defender leapt to meet a corner just after 10 minutes of the match had been player, and sent a powerful header towards goal – only to be denied by the post.
Mason Mount's delivery was inch-perfect for the 6ft 2in Stones to meet, unchallenged, on the edge of the six-yard box, and was unlucky not to put the Three Lions ahead.

The moment was probably the best goalscoring chance of the first half, which was a nervy affair – and which Scotland may feel they had the better of otherwise.
