DID YOU KNOW? ENGLAND V SCOTLAND

DID YOU KNOW?

1) England have won their World Cup qualifying group in each of their previous five campaigns; they last failed to win it ahead of the 1994 finals, when they finished third.

 

2) England are unbeaten in each of their last 15 European Championship or World Cup qualifying matches, winning 14. 

 

3) William Kenyon-Slaney scored twice on his England debut in a 4-2 win at the Kennington Oval, in 1873. He became the first international from outside the British Isles, having been born in India.

 

4)  When England beat Scotland 7-2 in 1955, Denis Wilshaw became the first to score four goals for England in this fixture.

 

5) Bobby Charlton made his England debut against Scotland in April 1958, just two months after he had survived the Munich Air Disaster. He marked his debut with a goal in the 4-0 win.

 

6) In 1984, Gary Lineker made his England debut against Scotland – but he never scored against them.

 

7) England have conceded 11 hat-tricks, the first five of which were scored by players from Scotland. They were scored by John McDougall (1878), George Ker (1880), John Smith (1881), Robert Smyth McColl (1900) and Alex Jackson (1928).

 

8) As a player, Gareth Southgate played against Scotland twice. In the first, at Euro 96, he was in the 2-0 Wembley win. But, in November 1999, he was in the losing side when Scotland won 1-0 in the second leg of a European Championship play-off, at Hampden Park.

 

9) Scotland manager Gordon Strachan won four of his 50 caps against England. He lost the first two (in May 1980 and June 1983) while drawing the third (May 1984) and winning the last, in May 1985.

 

10) This is the first time England have played Scotland in a World Cup qualifier, though in 1950 and 1954 the British Championship was used to decide who qualified for the finals – and England won both.
