SYNOPSIS: England wearing the white shorts kicked off against Scotland before a crowd of one hundred thousand at the Wembley stadium.
Scotland played better football than England for most of the first half, continually attacking. In the twenty-first minute Kenny Dalglish controlled a corner kick and John Wark scored an easy goal.
One somewhat drunken Scottish supporter led a team of British bobbies (policemen) a merry chase over the muddly pitch to the cheers of Scottish fans....
And then it was Scotland in attack again, but the minute of play wasted by the shaven headed Scotsman and then added onto the first half, was to have dire consequences for Scotland.
England's Peter Barnes Knocked in a left foot shot in the last minute of the first half...and it was Scotland 1, England 1.
England looked far more dangerous in attack after break. After a prolonged period of possession, England launched the finest team move of the match, twenty minutes into the second half.
Ray Wilkins shot for goal the ball bounced off the chest of Scotland's goalkeeper, George Wood and Steve Coppell, ran it into the net.
England 2, Scotland 1.
The European Footballer of the year, Kevin Keegan sprinted the ball down the pitch, received the pass back from Trevor Brooking and knocked in a fine goal. Final score England 3, Scotland 1.
