Description

Scotland are on the attack. Nobby Stiles fouls Dennis Law - both Manchester United players at the time - leading to a free kick. The ball falls to Gemmell who takes a long range shot. The English defence can't clear properly, and Dennis Law scores a cracker. The noise of the crowd goes through the roof as the Scottish players celebrate. Highlights continue. England gets a goal back through Jackie Charlton after a deft back heel from Jimmy Greaves. Charlton limps around injured, but the players celebrate with the delighted crowd. At this point, the score is Scotland 2, England 1 with about 5 minutes to play. Law nearly scores again for Scotland, albeit from an extraordinary save from Gordon Banks, sending the crowd into a frenzy. There are more chances for both teams, before Jim McCalliog scores again for Scotland. They think it's all over, but right at the last, England score again, this time with a header from Geoff Hurst.
