    Scotland v Netherlands 1978 World Cup

    Classic Scotland game from 1978 World cup. Amazing to think we were one of the 'favourites' going into the competition.

    Watch out for Rough's assault on one of the Dutch players. Straight red these days. Just a free kick back then.

    Penalty Scotland - Gemmill scores to make it 2-1.

    Imagine if we could get another.

    In my recollection the only thing we were favourites for was for getting the next plane home.

    I donít think we were favourites going into the Holland game but we thought we were going to roll over Peru and Iran. We had a good team but totally underestimated the opposition in the first two games.

    That is on a par with the Zaire player runnin' oot the wall and kickin' the ball away in 1974.

    Holland had the offside trap down to a fine art every time a Scotsman crossed the half way line Offside! Every time a Scotsman tackled them they expected a foul to be awarded in their favour but luckily the Ref waved play on
    Still no a bad side reached the final IIRC

    Sorry, I meant 'favourites' going into the tournament not the game. I recall one radio article saying that we were third favourites.

    I'll change the OP.

    Watching that last night was a good argument for the subsequent amendment of the offside rule so that only players interfering with play count as offside.

    Scotland were the only team to beat Holland in 90 minutes in that tournament. Holland lost in extra time in the final.
