I was on night shift so, after cleaning the barnacles off my snorkel, I tuned into the live broadcast. I think there was maybe only seven or eight corners in the whole game and Scotland's first one was 18 minutes from the end. One free kick and some rowdy penalty claims from the land of Hitler's birth. There's a massive twerp does BBC Scotland's footie yackover and with the 4 minutes of extra time remaining, he regaled us with some sad story about Scotland coming up short in similar circumstances at some otherwise unforgettable east European venue way back before I had breakfast. Just reading today that last night's win maintains Scotland's 43-year unbeaten run in Vienna. I know, that's not near as impressive as England's 56 year wait for... something or other but maybe a betting man should take note for next time.Drunk Monkey wrote: ↑September 8, 2021, 6:48 amGreat result for the sweaties Tam .. a win is a win even when scoring a solitary goal not in open play but via a dubious penalty with a Dykes slipping it past the keeper nicely... the WC qualification dream is back on for the tartan army ..more tales of the unexpected.
That's one MASSIVE game over and since Israel dumped heavily on Austria already, they come to Hampden for Scotland's second MASSIVE game next month. Scotland dumped Israel out of the Nations Cup on penalties earlier so this will be a good one (I know, it doesn't take much).
