If anyone wants to re-live some memories from the 1982 World Cup tonight BBC Scotland (channel 108 on freeview) are showing the game at 7.15pm.

There is that absolute howler of a f**k up between Hansen and Miller (I think) that gifts the Russians a goal which you watch now and go, “Ah, there it is - Scotland finding a way to blow it as only they can.”

they are showing Scotland 2-1 Sweden from Italia 90 next Friday night, but that's balanced out with scum "legend" Tom Boyd's favourite game against Brazil in 1998 on Saturday

I wonder if the Costa Rica game counts as a "classic"? :D

“And here comes Shengalia to knock Scotland out of the World Cup”

Still remember that line all these years later.

Apparently later that night Hansen was dancing on tables in a local boozer much to the disgust of Miller

I was at the costa del sol in 2012. I mind wondering what it must have been like during the spain 82 world when 20,000 scots decended on it long before the tartan trannie days.

Must have been a great time apart from how it ended of course.

Miller said in an interview he couldnt strike up a partnership with hansen. They just didnt click.

As becomes clear towards the end of the game.

Loved that World Cup. I was 11 then and loved everything about the Brazil team apart from the big striker Serginho who was a donkey. Wish they had shown Scotland Brazil, Eder’s goal was brilliant

He was right.

That was a great side. I reckon about 6 - 8 of that starting line up played in European club finals give or take a few years around 1982.
