    Match Report by Norman Giller

This was England's final game before flying off for the World Cup warm-up games in South America, and the Scots were hell bent on giving them a morale-sapping defeat as a farewell present. England were equally determined not to be beaten and the game became bogged down in a midfield stalemate. A buffeting wind whipped around Hampden and made ball control difficult, robbing the 137,438 spectators of what had been an anticipated classic. The game produced the first goalless draw between Scotland and England since the first ever international football match between them back in 1872.
