No 3: Scotland 3, England 4
2 April 1966
In one of the most thrilling clashes between the nations, the visitors edged the first half, Geoff Hurst and Roger Hunt putting them two goals ahead before Denis Law, right, rose majestically to head home Willie Johnston’s corner.
Hunt added a second two minutes after the break but, the Scots, inspred by Law and Billy Bremner, roared back. Jimmy Johnstone, whose trickery tormented England, evaded two defenders to beat Gordon Banks at his near post. After a typical Bobby Charlton 25-yarder made it 4-2, “Jinky” thundered home his second from Jim Baxter’s free kick. In a late onslaught, Bremner was denied a clear penalty for a trip and Nobby Stiles cleared off the line, but under-siege England held out.
