Came across this one the other day all the way from 1968 and with, we think George Davidson commentating. It’s a World Cup Qualifier at Hampden against Austria in November 1968. Scotland go down one nil after 2 minutes with Ronnie Simpson not looking too great in in his last game for Scotland, however a few minutes later oor Denis equalises. In the second half Billy Bremner manages to squeeze in between a few Austrians to poke the ball home after a cross from John Greig.
Scotland won 2-1 and that night the line-up was Ronnie Simpson, Tommy Gemmell, Eddie McCreadie, Ronnie McKinnon, John Greig, Jimmy Johnstone, Charlie Cooke, John Hughes, Denis Law and Bobby Lennox. Alan Gilzean came on for Law in 75 minutes. The match was played in front of a crowd of 80,856.
