Was extremely underemployed in the first half, with the only real scare coming from his own making as he came out to collect the ball from Maloney. Had only a couple of efforts which troubled him, but overall nothing special.
Another one of the backline who had little trouble, especially early on when it was Serbia that were in command of the game and he was in position to make sure Scotland did not advance.
Looked to push forward from the left back are, making Hutton go backwards to defend against the Fiorentina full-back. When he was made to defend, he was solid and dependable.
Rarely troubled by Rhodes as the visitors continued to look to launch the ball forward, meaning that he could get in position in order to make sure that the Blackburn striker didn’t get in on goal. Had a few challenges that could have seen him go for an early bath, though.
The Chelsea defender was as solid as a rock for the home side, as anything coming down the left wing was snuffed out. He also looked to get forwards and help the frontline, especially at set pieces.
Was a willing runner for Serbia, as he constantly raced forward in search of a goal. He was a continual menace to the Scotland rear guard when he ventured forward.
A constant thorn in the side of the Scottish defence, as he willingly ran at them, time and time again. He was unlucky not to get the opener, as Tosic’s cross was taken off his feet. Replaced by Petrovic, with the game already won.
Was lucky not to see more than a yellow card for a nasty challenge on Rhodes, but other than that the CSKA Moscow midfielder looked superb as he adapted to the conditions, playing passes about and setting up chances, including Serbia’s opener.
A willing runner throughout, always looking to get forward, added to the Serbian attack whenever possible with some good passing that helped set up some chances for his side. Was eventually replaced by Djordjevic with just over 20 minutes left.
One of the quieter players in the midfield area for Serbia, but when called upon he was in the right place at the time for the home side, helping to set-up the second goal for Djuricic.
The 21-year-old was constantly looking to get in behind the Scotland centre defensive pairing but found Hanley a handful at times, which left him unable to get a shot off. But he was available when the ball came to him in order to claim a double for the home side.
A surprise inclusion in place of McGregor, but the Cardiff stopper didn’t let his manager down with some good saves. He maybe could have done better with the second Serbian goal, but was let down throughout by some of the defenders in front of him.
The Norwich defender had a horrid show at left-back, as he was constantly beat by Serbian runners and any time he ventured forward, the 28-year-old either proceeded to give away possession or misplace his pass to a team-mate.
Another horror show for his national side once again. The on-loan Mallorca full back was out of position, time and time again, allowing Tosic the freedom of the left wing, which he exploited continually.
Was the best of the back four, especially in the first half, as he was willing to put in the necessary challenges for his side. But the Blackburn youngster got caught out by the nervousness of those next to him.
Didn’t have the kind of performance he would have liked, as the Scotland captain was caught out with balls over the top and when he did have the ball, his passing was terrible, launching it forward without any care.
Had a superb start to his career in a Scotland jersey, as he, unlike many of his team-mates was willing to keep the ball on the ground and attempt to pass it about. Unfortunately the 23-year-old started to tire in the second half as Serbia took control of the fixture.
Was totally anonymous in the first half, offering nothing to Scotland in the centre of midfield and as such that saw the former Hamilton Accies player hauled off at the interval to be replaced by Adam.
Had a quiet game, which the conditions not allowing him to play the style of football that he is used to. Couldn’t get on the ball enough and look to get into forward positions to help his side. Was taken off for Burke late on.
Constantly looking on as the ball was travelling over his head, as the Scotland defence continually booted it forward, leaving the Blackburn striker with no chance to get in on goal as he received little of the ball. Replaced by Miller late into the game.
The debutant had a promising first start for Scotland, as he looked to get the ball forward to Rhodes in front of him. But he continually had to track back as Serbia started to dictate play and overrun the Scottish midfield.
Similar to Maloney, the Everton midfielder never seemed to get control of the game, as Scotland were on the back foot for most of it. Did have the ball in the back of the net just after the half-time break, but ruled offside.
