One of the final matches in Group F saw Slovenia played out a draw with Scotland at Stadion Stozice, according to the Guardian. Needing a win to move into the playoffs for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Scotland went in front when striker Leigh Griffiths struck home the opener in the thirty-second minute. Afterward, Slovenia responded with two goals from substitute Roman Bezjak in the fifty-second and seventy-second minutes respectively.

A few minutes into stoppage time, substitute Robert Snodgrass leveled up the scoreline for the visitors, and they eventually settled for a draw at full-time.
