Scotland manager Alex McLeish admitted he and his players were "really hurting" after their Euro 2008 dream was cruelly and dramatically shattered.

A 2-1 defeat to Italy at Hampden eliminated McLeish´s side and sent Italy through to next summer´s finals.

McLeish told BBC Radio Scotland: "I can´t say it doesn´t matter, of course it matters, we´re really hurting. We were so close, if Faddy´s (James McFadden) chance goes in then Italy are probably out of the tournament."
