Notes

After the last of the British [Home International] Championships in 1983-84, England continued to play Scotland annually for the next five years in the Rous Cup, which was contested in a single match the first two years and in a three-team tournament the last three years. The Rous Cup was named after the late Sir Stanley Rous, who served as secretary of the Football Association from 1934 to 1961 and president of FIFA from 1961 to 1974.  The 1989 edition of the Rous Cup was the last, and England's 1989 match against Scotland marked the end of a rivalry that, outside the First and Second World Wars, had been observed annually since the very first international match in 1872.  England did not meet Scotland again until the luck of the draw paired the two in group play at the European Championship final tournament of 1996 and again in playoff matches for qualification for the European Championship final tournament of 2000.
