Leighton Baines played the full match and Phil Jagielka got 83 minutes' worth of action as England beat Scotland 3-2 in Wednesday evening's friendly at Wembley.

A pulsating international saw Scotland nudge ahead after 11 minutes through James Morrison. Theo Walcott levelled for the Three Lions but the visitors regained the advantage shortly after half-time with a low strike from Kenny Miller.

Danny Welbeck scored England's second equaliser before debutant Rickie Lambert headed in Baines' corner to seal the win for Roy Hodgson's side.

Blues frontman Steven Naismith was introduced as a late substitute for Scotland but his involvement was limited after appearing from the bench in the 82nd minute.

Elsewhere, Seamus Coleman played the whole of Republic of Ireland's scoreless draw with Wales in Cardiff.

Marouane Fellaini was another to get a 90-minute outing for Belgium in their nil-nil stalemate with France. Kevin Mirallas made a second-half substitute appearance in Brussels, featuring for the last 20 minutes.

Tim Howard conceded three goals but still ended up on the winning team as the USA fought back from two goals down to beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 4-3.

Nikica Jelavic played the second half in Croatia's 3-2 victory in Lichtenstein.

On the Under-21s scene, Shane Duffy captained Republic of Ireland to a 4-1 win over Faroe Islands in their first qualifier for the 2015 European Championships.

On Tuesday evening, Ross Barkley scored in England Under-21s 6-0 win over Scotland, a game which also saw John Stones play the full 90 minutes.
