22 years

It has taken Scotland’s national football team (men) 22 years to qualify for a major international football tournament.

This film begins on the 10 June 1998 with Scotland playing Brazil in the opening match of the 1998 World Cup.

This film ends on the 12 November 2020 with Scotland qualifying for the 2020 Euros, by beating Serbia on penalties [after extra-time].

N.B. 23 years will have lapsed by the time Scotland play in the Euros – due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This film is for Andrew who was one year old when Scotland last qualified!
