Here’s a cracking video. Well, not so good if you’re looking for a Scotland win but just look at that mud; it looks more like the Belgian battlefields of 1917 rather than the Stade Sclessin in Liege. According to the SFA site this game took place at 3pm but it is more likely a night time game surely; either that or it gets really dark in the Belgian winter.
The Scotland team that night were; 1 Jim Cruickshanks, 2 David Hay, 3 Tommy Gemmell, 4 Pat Stanton, 5 Ronnie McKinnon (watch out for his own goal), 6 Bobby Moncur, 7 Archie Gemmill (watch out for his great sliding tackle), 8 John Grieg (nice petulant kick at a Belgium player), 9 Colin Stein, 10 John O’Hare and 11, Charlie Cooke. Stanton and Stein came off at half time with Jim Forrest (number unknown) and Tony Green (16) replacing them. See who you can spot?
Other than the McKinnon own goal, Paul Van Himst scores the two other goals including a peach of a free kick
