England V Scotland Wembley 2013

Recommended Posts

England will restart football relations with Scotland next year in a revival of the game's oldest international fixture.

The Football Association announced on Saturday that the two countries, who first played each other at the West of Scotland Cricket Club's ground at Partick, Glasgow, in 1872, will meet in a friendly at Wembley to mark the FA's 150th anniversary celebrations.

The game - on Wednesday August 14, 2013 - will be the 111th time the two countries have faced each other.

They used to square up annually in the home championship but withdrew from that competition after 1984, citing waning spectator interest, crowded fixture lists and hooliganism.

Since then they have met five times in the short-lived Rous Cup and three times in the European Championship, the most recent being in 1999 when Scotland won 1-0 in the second leg of a Euro 2000 qualifying play-off at Wembley.
