    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Goals in each half by Gordon McQueen and Kenny Dalglish pushed England to defeat and for the first time they lost consecutive matches at Wembley. Mike Channon's consolation goal came from the penalty spot three minutes from the end of a game in which Scotland were always the more productive and enterprising side. The Scottish fans decided that Wembley belonged to them and started to tear up the hallowed turf, taking huge chunks of it back to Scotland with them. They also wrecked the goals. It brought into question the need for fencing at Wembley and the future of the Home Championship was put in doubt. It all helped fuel Don Revie's increasing distaste for his job as England manager.
