ROBERT SNODGRASS scored the only goal as Scotland stunned World Cup hopefuls Croatia.

Gordon Strachan's side have no chance of making it to Brazil next year having gained just two points from six previous qualifiers.

But they ruined Croatia's chances of finishing top of Group A thanks to Strachan's first win in charge.

The winner came after 26 minutes, Snodgrass reacting fastest to a loose ball after fine work by Shaun Maloney.

Croatia, ranked fourth in the world, pushed hard for an equaliser, but Scotland almost grabbed a second when Barry Bannan shot just wide.
