So there I was ready to tell of the tale of 6 and then Robert Marshall tells me two more were sold and so overnight we drop from seven needed to sell to 4. So here goes a Scotland 4.
4 caps; oddly there are five players with four caps who have appeared at World Cups starting from 1954 and Jock Aird who was also capped by New Zealand. 1958 we had Stewart Imlach making two of his four appearances and in 1978 Joe Harper made his one and only appearance under Ally MacLeod coming on as a sub against Iran. Joe’s other three appearances were all v Denmark scoring two goals in the process. Allan Evans played in the ’82 World Cup and despite lifting the European Cup with Aston Villa never played again. Finally, Robert Fleck played at Italia ’90.
Whisper it but Chris ‘the Miss’ Iwelumo played four times too.
4 goals – some legends and some not so including Jinky Johnstone, Dave Mackay, Gordon Smith, Asa Hartford, Graeme Souness as well as Steve Archibald, Steve Crawford, John McGinlay, Darren Jackson and Scott Brown.
Number 4 in the World Cup squads from ’78 to ’98 were; Billy Bremner -’74, Martin Buchan – ’78 and then for ’82 and ’86 Graeme Souness. Richard Gough took over at Italia ’90 and then it was Colin Calderwood in France ’98.
We have played Argentina four times and of course were soundly beaten by them in 1979 with Maradona running riot at Hamoden as a precocious teenager but I prefer to remember Stewart McKimmie scoring against them in 1990 to give us a memorable 1-0 victory at home.
So guys 4 left to sell. Think of it as a donation to us for all the hard work we have put in over the last couple of years providing the Facebook page and website.
So Buy Buy Buy. Bye
