On this day in 1971, Tommy Docherty gave Kenny Dalglish his debut for Scotland coming on as a sub for Alex Cropley in the 48th minute in a European Championship Qualifier. John O’Hare scored in the 6th minute and that was enough to give Scotland a rare win over Belgium at Pittodrie. Kenny of course, scored the second goal in our 2-1 victory over England at Wembley, 1977.
Twenty years ago to the day, who can forget this one. John McGinlay scored in the 8th minute to put Scotland ahead against Sweden. Jim Leighton would put on a superb display for the remaining 82 minutes to make sure it stayed that way to help us on our road to France ’98.
