France 0 – 1 Scotland

UEFA EUROS 12/09/2007 T Shirt Size Guide


How unlucky would you have to be to end up in a European Championship qualifying group featuring not one, but both teams that contested the most recent World Cup final? You could’ve forgiven any team crumbling like biscotti under a guillotone, but Scotland didn’t half give it a go. Not only did they secure this belter of a result, they also beat France by the same scoreline at Hampden Park. Conceding a last minute goal to Italy and losses to Ukraine and Georgia did for them. The former not the end of the world but the latter two certainly avoidable. I suppose the only upside for the Scots being that England managed to nuts their own situation up in spectacular fashion. Schadenfreude with a side of square sausage.
