Qualification and the absence of key players presented the opportunity for some more peripheral Scotland figures to showcase their Euro 2024 credentials.
There seemed a real determination to sign off this campaign in style and that led to a game that was far more open than you'd expect.
Armstrong was one who stood out with a quality performance that showed his value. Jacob Brown struggled at times but increasingly got involved as his confidence grew. Whether that was enough we shall see.
Defensively, though, there were questions to answer. With Angus Gunn, Tierney, Robertson and Aaron Hickey all injured, Scotland looked exposed for both goals.
There's depth there but too many goals have been conceded of late, something that will undoubtedly be analysed going forward in terms of formation and personnel.
There's clearly room for improvement, but the bottom line is this has been a wonderful qualifying campaign with the hard work done early and qualification for back-to-back Euros secured in style.
The Hampden after-party was electric. This result didn't really matter. Scotland have delivered and can look forward to another major tournament with hope of making an impression.
