68 mins, Scotland 3 Holland 2, World Cup first round, San Martin stadium, Mendoza, June 11, 1978
Although Scotland went on to win the game 3-2, they exited the competition because the Dutch had a superior goal difference. Years later Gemmill recalled: “I think the squad we had in 1978 was good enough, maybe not to win the World Cup, but to have done an awful lot better than we did. The manager always gets the blame but it was the players who never performed”.
