Scotland national football team mens association football team representing Scotland

The Scotland national football team represents Scotland in international football and is controlled by the Scottish Football Association. It competes in the three major professional tournaments, the FIFA World Cup, UEFA Nations League and the UEFA European Championship. Scotland, as a constituent country of the United Kingdom, is not a member of the International Olympic Committee and therefore the national team does not compete in the Olympic Games. The majority of Scotland's home matches are played at the national stadium, Hampden Park.

Notes

  1. The SFA credit the third Scotland goal to Davie Wilson "Archived copy". Archived from the original on 27 September 2007. Retrieved 19 December 2008., but RSSSF credit the goal to Pat Quinn .
  2. The match was played as a tie-breaking play-off because Scotland and Czechoslovakia were level on 6 points. It finished 2–2 after 90 minutes and was decided by a period of extra time.
  3. The match was abandoned after 79 minutes by English referee Jim Finney after two Austrian players were sent off. Finney said afterwards: "I felt that I had to abandon the match or somebody would have been seriously hurt." The match was recognised by FIFA as an official international and caps were awarded by the SFA.
  4. 1 2 3 4 5 6 The 1967 and 1968 British Home Championships were also used as a UEFA Euro 1968 qualifying group. Scotland finished in second place in group 8 and did not progress further in the competition.
  5. 1 2 3 Three friendly matches were organised in 1973 to celebrate the centenary of the Scottish Football Association. These were against traditional rivals England, 1970 FIFA World Cup winners Brazil and UEFA Euro 1972 winners West Germany.
  6. Ninian Park, the normal home ground for Wales at the time, was not used because there had been disorder at a Wales match there in 1976. The Football Association of Wales decided to play the match at Anfield, rather than an alternative Welsh ground such as the Racecourse Ground in Wrexham, because it had a much greater capacity.
