NOW TRY Quiz! Can you name the Scotland line-up from the 1998 World Cup match against Brazil?

Think of Cameroon at the 1990 World Cup and you probably think of Roger Milla, the elder statesman of the side, dancing by the corner flag.

It was England that put them out of the competition – but with the Indomitable Lions coming within eight minutes of going through to the semi-finals of Italia 90, Bobby Robson's players badly unestimated their opponents. 

Howard Wilkinson apparently informed the England players at the time that this quarter-final was "A practical bye to the semi-finals". One of the players who stayed on the pitch for the full 90 minutes and extra time reportedly told Wilkinson afterwards, "Some f***ing bye, that".

It's 32 long years ago – but how many of the Three Lions side can you name from that game?
