Scotland 1 – 0 France.

Oh, this did make me laugh!

Well done Scotland and dear Colin Moffat, hurrah for your enthusiasm 🙂

From BBC Sport: –

Scotland sit proudly at the top of Euro 2008 qualifying Group B after a fabulous win over France at Hampden.

Thierry Henry hit the post as France dominated the first 45 minutes but Scotland improved after the interval.

And Gary Caldwell, who was outstanding in defence, turned goal hero when he stabbed the ball home from a Paul Hartley corner kick on 67 minutes.

France enjoyed the bulk of possession but Walter Smith’s well-organised team worked hard for a famous victory.”

An entertaining read – an emotive one at that too 😉

Below is an editted version – emotive phraseology removed.

Not quite as thrilling, eh? 😉
