The fine finish from Caldwell took Scotland top of the table for qualification for Euro 2008. In a group which contained the 2006 World Cup finalists, Italy and France, as well as Ukraine and perennial nuisances Georgia, it gave the country hope that they could achieve the unthinkable.

Despite falling short, it was one of a number of thrilling moments during the campaign. And it is a moment most fans will know where they were when the ball hit the back of the net.

Who can produce a similar moment on Sunday?
