If You Know The History – 25th June 1966

Most football fans would agree that the stars from Brazil are a little bit special and love to see them in action.  Scotland has played against the men from South America on 9 occasions, the first of which was on this day in 1966, when a crowd of almost 75,000 turned up at Hampden.

There were two Celtic players in the side – Stevie Chalmers and John Clark – and Stevie got Scotland off to the perfect start when he opened the scoring in 38 seconds. Brazil later equalised through Servilio and the match ended 1-1, the fans leaving well content with their national team’s draw against such talented opposition.
