15th June 1974.

I remember watching this game on TV.With England shockingly failing to qualify for the 1974 World Cup.Their was huge interest in the Scottish participation in West Germany.
They had a very good team made up mostly from top flight teams in Division One of the Football League.
The Scots payed a high price ultimately for taking their foot off the gas in the 2nd half against a hapless Zaire team.
Zaire lost 9-0 to Yugoslavia in their next game.
Scotland were knocked out of the group stages by goal difference(one goal)
A poor by their historical standard Brazil progressed instead.

Saw a bit of the 1973 FA Cup final between Leeds and Sunderland yesterday what a day that was. I think it may have been my first live tv match.

A huge shock that result.Leeds at their full pomp in those days.Sunderland a mediocre Division Two team.

Ian Porterfield.Lorimers shot & Montgomery’s fantastic save.

Even after the passage 35 years, you have just spoilt my day Olds by posting that clip of the cheating count ! :mad:
I know the feeling CB.
Just to raise your BP a bit higher,the linesman saw the punch but the protocol in those days was that he could not consult the referee if the ref had awarded the goal.

The linesman was quoted as saying recently that the ref should have stuck to keeping goats in Tunisia.😁
