Comfortable and untroubled early on as he made his first competitive start for Spain, called upon only to save Berra's tame header, but clumsily gave away a second-half penalty for a challenge on Mackail-Smith - albeit a dubious one.
Good, albeit risky, sliding tackle to dispossess Naismith in the area after 25 minutes, and a generally solid performance alongside Barca team-mate Puyol. Brought the ball out of defence with his usual class.
Played it safe with his first few passes but soon looked comfortable on his Spain debut and set up Silva for the opening goal after five minutes. Made some great runs and was involved in a lot of Spain's best work. Great debut.
Back from injury and back in the side, Puyol looked solid for the most part at the back alongside club colleague Gerard Pique and even got forward well to head wide after 17 minutes. Still short of full fitness and replaced at the break.
Not having the best time for Spain at the moment. Is he a centre-back or a full-back? Slightly disappointing here on the right and against the Czechs on Friday as well. Also picked up a booking as well for a foul on Naismith.
Started the move which saw Spain go ahead after five minutes and dictated the play with his customary class in midfield, before he was eventually withdrawn in the second half with a niggling problem. Still the main man for La Roja.
Much further forward than usual as Scotland were pegged back, this was a more offensive Busquets than usual and the Barca midfielder showed a neat passing range in the absence of the injured Xabi Alonso. Tidy and productive.
Tried his luck with a clean strike after 11 minutes, but McGregor saved well. Linked up well in the middle and across the park. Thwarted again by McGregor following an excellent low drive. The Malaga man is staking a claim.
Pedro got better as the game wore on. The Barca forward was a tireless worker and almost scored a brilliant goal late on when he beat his man with some outrageous skill, only to blast the ball over the bar. A spirited showing.
The best player on the park. Silva continued his impressive form from Friday as he netted a fine opener, scored an even better second and brilliantly set up former Valencia team-mate David Villa for Spain's third. Simply sensational.
Villa had another great game, playing a key part in the move for Spain's first and then netting his 50th international goal in the second half with a customary clinical strike. How many better strikers are there out there than this man? A big star.
Will have been disappointed to have been beaten at near post by Silva for the first goal, but was blameless for the other two and made one brilliant save to deny Cazorla, as well as several other decent stops.
Failed to cope with Jordi Alba and Villa and was left in their wake as the duo combined to set up the opening goal for Silva. Given a torrid time as Scotland struggled to contain Spain and was unable to get forward as he likes to.
Left exposed as he was unable to deal with the pace of Pedro and the trickery of Silva, but looked more comfortable than fellow full-back Hutton and never stopped running. A brave performance.
His weak header at the far post was the closest Scotland came in the first half, but it easily saved by Valdes. Defensively he struggled and was a mere spectator as Spain tore open the visitors' defence at will.
The Wigan man was out of his depth and like Berra, simply could not cope with Silva's intelligent runs between the lines. Some good tackling, but a largely forgettable evening against a side he will be glad not to see for a very long time.
Chipped a free-kick into the area to set up Naismith for a header in the first half and flashed a dangerous ball across the area late in the second half, but was reduced mainly to a defensive role and was eventually replaced.
Did well to clear from Pedro after half an hour and popped up in attack with some lively touches in the first half, but failed to make a big impact and was replaced by Goodwillie after 62 minutes.
Kicked the ball out of play as he attempted an ambitious change of play after 20 minutes and it didn't get any better after that. Largely anonymous as he failed to get hold of the ball and was left chasing shadows for the most part.
Had his moments with some neat touches and was applauded off the field by former Manchester United team-mate Pique, but had few opportunities to show his quality as he was overrun in midfield.
Another lively performer for the Scots. Made a decent clearance after 17 minutes as Ramos threatened to get away down the right, then headed wide at the other end. Showed some neat touches and never stopped running.
The Brighton forward started again after his winner against Liechtenstein, but was feeding off scraps here. Did well to win the penalty for the Scots' only goal as he went down rather easily under a challenge from Valdes. A willing runner.
- Javi Martínez
Came on for Puyol at the interval and was his usual solid self at right-back as Ramos moved to a central position. Supported the attack well, too.
Replaced the brilliant Silva after 54 minutes and although he wasn't able to have the same impact as the Manchester City man, the Barcelona midfielder kept it simple in midfield, showed some neat touches and also tracked back.
Came on for Xavi with just under half an hour to go and looked lively, forcing McGregor into one fine save after an impressive turn and shot.
- Fernando Torres
- D. Marshall
- S. Whittaker
- S. McManus
Came on with five minutes left and made little impact as Spain threatened to make it 4-1 late on.
Helped the Scots improve as he came on as a sub in the last half an hour, but the game was already lost for the visitors by then.
- B. Robson
Got the Scots back in it as he lashed a penalty into the top corner after coming on as substitute for Bannan with just under half an hour left and had a very good pass cut out late in the game as well. A decent cameo.
