Marc Guéhi won his sixth England cap at Hampden Park as the Three Lions secured a comfortable victory at the home of the ‘Auld Enemy’, starting the match before being withdrawn at half-time - by which point England were two goals to the good thanks to Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham.
The Palace centre-back won 100% of his ground and aerial duels contested, and restricted Scotland from creating any chances in the opening period.
Palace’s Ebere Eze was introduced on the 72nd minute in place of Marcus Rashford for his second cap, and was denied a first England goal almost as soon as coming on by a crucial Angus Gunn save. Sam Johnstone was an unused substitute.
Given their involvement, Palace became the only club to have a representative in both the first international between England and Scotland and its 150th anniversary commemoration fixture.
The previous Saturday, Guéhi featured as the Three Lions drew 1-1 with Ukraine in their latest Euro qualifier, playing the full 90 minutes as Oleksandr Zinchenko and Kyle Walker exchanged first-half goals and England’s winning run was brought to an end.
Nevertheless, Guéhi impressed many with his overall display, winning two tackles, making two interceptions and completing a clearance, as well as enjoying a match-high 118 touches, 111 completed passes and a 98.2% passing accuracy, including three of three long balls.
