Tomorrow, England play oldest rivals Scotland at Wembley in their European Championships group game. We dug into the Big Interview archives and unearthed the recollections of three men who engaged in two famous Euros encounters between the Auld Enemies at the old Wembley in the 1990s.
One of Darren Anderton’s career highs occurred in June 1996 when England defeated the Scots 2-0. He set up Paul Gascoigne for his memorable goal with a superb pass. Darren tells us about the incredible feeling of that summer in England.
For a Scottish perspective, we first hear from Gary McAllister, who featured in the ’96 match’s pivotal moment. With the score at 1-0, David Seaman saved Gary’s penalty. Moments later, Darren picked out Gazza. Sheer agony.
Three years later, Scotland reclaimed pride in the second leg of a European Championships play-off qualifier. They trailed 2-0 from the Hampden match and would ultimately go out, but not without bloodying English noses with a magnificent 1-0 Wembley victory. The scorer and star of the show was Don Hutchison, and we hear from him last.
Scotland fans and England fans, whet your appetite with this special preview episode of the Big Interview.
