Scotland are in good shape heading into the Euro 2012 qualifiers, having seen off Czech Republic on Wednesday.
A 1-0 win at Hampden Park provided Craig Levein with the perfect start to his reign as national boss.
Scott Brown grabbed the only goal of the game, but it could have been more as Scotland controlled proceedings for long periods.
Confidence has been restored to a squad that has failed to reach a major tournament since 1998 and there is genuine belief that this side is capable of ending that barren run.
"It's been a long time coming and I think we showed determination, spirit and I thought we were well organised and we could have gone on and scored a few more goals towards the end," Middlesbrough midfielder Barry Robson told Sky Sports following a commanding display against the Czechs.
Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam was also in buoyant mood after the match and hopes the feel-good factor can be carried into Scotland's next fixture.
"It breeds confidence, any win gives you confidence. A 1-0 win is great and we have to take it on to the next game," he said.
Scotland kick-off their 2012 qualifying campaign against Lithuania on 3rd September and Rangers ace Kevin Thomson feels a tricky trip out on the road should hold no fear for Levein's men.
"Come the qualifiers it will be a different kettle of fish and probably a different team, but that gives us an idea of what to expect," he said.
"I thought we were a bit cagey in the first 20 minutes or so but once the game opened up I felt both teams tried to take command of the game and thankfully we got the goal. It was a good result."
