Scotland fans spilled on to the Wembley turf on June 4, 1977, after Gordon McQueen and Kenny Dalglish struck to secure a famous 2-1 win over England in the Home Internationals.
A pitch invasion at full-time saw a sizeable contingent of the Tartan Army celebrate joyously following a game in which the scoreline flattered the hosts, such was the dominance of the Scots.
The goalposts were torn down while a number of supporters walked away with a piece of English football’s most hallowed surface – a memento from such a historic day.
Two years earlier, Scotland had been routed 5-1 at the same venue but Ally McLeod’s side were a more formidable force on their next visit.
Scotland were in the ascendancy early on and Dalglish could perhaps count himself unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty after some heavy pressure from Mick Mills in the area.
However, the visitors went ahead three minutes before the interval when McQueen powered home a header from a free-kick.
Dalglish was able to double their lead on the hour, scoring at the second attempt after his initial attempt was blocked, and although Mike Channon pulled one back with a late penalty, it counted for little.
The final whistle sparked frenzied celebration from the travelling fans, while Scotland toasted finishing top of the Home Internationals table that year.
