DATE: 13 November 1999
OCCASION: Euro 2000 play-off first leg
SIGNIFICANCE: This is the closest Scotland have come to making a major championship in the 21st century. It only took 20 minutes for Kevin Keegan’s England to silence a raucous Hampden, the Ginger Prince chesting down a long pass to fire home. And then this coffin nail, banged in by Scholes’ ginger nut from David Beckham’s pinpoint cross…
SCORE: Scotland 0-2 England
SCORER: Scholes 21, 42
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT: “We can still go to Wembley with hope,” reckoned Scottish boss Craig Brown. “We’ve always scored away from home when we need to, and we can do it in London.” CB was spot on, 0-1 the scoreline, England into the Euros… and Scottish wounds still festering with no prospect of revenge.
LINE-UPS: Scotland: Sullivan, Weir, Ritchie, Dailly, Hendry, Ferguson, Dodds, Burley, Gallacher (Burchill 82), Hutchison, Collins. England: Seaman, P. Neville, Campbell, Ince, Adams, Keown, Beckham, Scholes, Shearer, Owen (Cole 67), Redknapp.
VENUE: Hampden Park
