76' Pressley heads Cocu's cross from the left away but the Netherlands are still controlling the game.

77' Seedorf brings the ball in from the left but then, surprisingly, tries a shot from distance which skids harmlessly wide. However, Scotland will have more defending to do as Roy Makaay has come on for Kluivert.

Hopefully you can keep it up and send the pampered primadonas packing in the second leg
Cheers P.

I think the Dutch still have a gear or two to step up yet though.
At least Scotland didn't concead an away goal:cool:

Actually, what you saw today is about the best we can do. I never understood why you manoeuvred Scotland into the underdog position in the first place.

Oh you're such a prick. Always try to look like you're objective and know everything about football, the first instance I see you comment on a game that involves a British nation you lower yourself to the standards of calling the opponent "pampered primadonas". Why the façade, Paul? Don't bother.

Erik, Scotland are simply in the underdog position because of their world ranking position...about fifty places below the Netherlands. I think it's a fair difference.

That was Scotland playing above them (our)selves and with a whole lot of good fortune on their (our) side.
Truth be told I never expected this result:confused:

I'm delighted with it however, and for the moment we are all pleased to have a narrow lead going into the next match, but most people here (those who aren't drunk at the moment ) know there is an even harder game to be played on Wednesday.
If Scotland do go through I'll be amazed and proud, even though I'm dreading the prospect of playing in Portugal

Alright, first: the FIFA rankings stink, they really do. They're arguably worse than UEFA's club rankings which are just as mysterious.

Secondly: there is no such thing as playing above yourself. You're either that good, or your not. (Don't tell me you believe in magic)

A harder game on Wednesday? Stam (our best man today) will be suspended and a 0-0 or a draw WITH goals is enough for Scotland to go through!

Would you say that that Scotland team bore any resemblance to the team that drew 2-2 with the Faroe Islands? (and had to come back from 2 goals down)....almost the same players.

Surely you must accept that some teams can raise their game through good motivational management skills, big occasion, etc


Christian Dailly, Scotland's man of the match is also out through yellow cards. We don't have any cover for his position


We can only wait and see what happens, but my opionion hasn't changed.

Scotland will not go through:down:...although we will go down fighting hard and with pride
