Russia is likely to face charges from Uefa over a huge banner held by its supporters which marks the 20th anniversary of NATO airstrikes in the year 1999 on Yugoslavia.
Exactly 3 days after Kazakhstan beat Scotland in first game of the group match, Scotland was impressive in a 2-0 win over San Marino. San Marino is the least ranked team on the planet.
