43 years ago to the day I attended my first Scotland game as Scotland hosted World Champions Brazil at Hampden Park in front of a crowd of 78,180 + 1 (Me). Derek Johnstone would score an own goal in 33rd minute, which would be the only goal of the game.
The line-ups were; McCloy, Jardine, McGrain, Holton, Derek Johnstone, Hay, Bremner, Morgan, Dalglish, Jordan and Parlane. George Graham would replace Dalglish in the 70th minute.
Brazil ; Leao, Pereira, Piazza, Ze Maria, Marco Antonio, Clodoaldo, Paulo Caesar, Rivelino, Valdomiro, Jairzinho, Dirceu. Almost a year later the two teams would meet again in the World Cup where a 0-0 draw was fought out..

Danny McGrain and Brazil’s Rivelino.

This was my first game what was yours?
