There are those who carp that the historic victory was achieved by female footballers. More fool them
The result that Scottish football supporters have fantasised about for more than a century became reality last week: Scotland 1, Brazil 0. The match took place in Spain and although it was billed as a “friendly” encounter, that fine Scottish commentator Derek Rae observed afterwards that the Brazilians did not take kindly to the defeat. “Bit of needle in it & a few of the Brazilian players not too happy at the end,” he tweeted.
For Scotland, the game was ideal preparation before they travel to France in June to take a tilt at the World Cup. For the teams that await them in the group stages – England, Argentina and Japan – it was proof that Scotland will be worthy and tough opponents. Each will have noted that the discipline, organisation and work rate that have recently come to characterise Scotland’s emergence as a genuine football power were evident in this display against a team ranked 10th in the world.
