Home Championship Success (1963) - Scotland 2-1 England

Only two years after taking a 9-3 hammering, Scotland’s form against the English started taking a more positive turn, winning three games in a row.

The second of these games was a 2-1 victory that confirmed a Scottish Home Championship title where both goals were scored by Jim Baxter, and Scotland’s win was made even more impressive by the fact they were down to 10 players after Eric Caldow broke his leg in the first half.

Scotland's Biggest Wn on English soil (1928) - england 1-5 Scotland

Scotland’s biggest ever win against England came in the 1928 British Home Championships.

An incredible 5-1 victory on England’s home turf was a surprising result, but one that should be remembered for many more years. Goals on the afternoon came in the form of a hat trick from Huddersfield Town forward Alex Jackson, as well as two more from Preston North End’s Alex James.

Scots beat the World Champions (1967) - England 2-3 Scotland

What could be considered as Scotland’s most impressive victory against the Three Lions, their 3-2 victory against at Wembley less than a year after England had won the World Cup was one of their best.

England entered the game on the back of a 19 game unbeaten run, and were expected to run riot. However, goals from Denis Law, Bobby Lenox and Jim McCalloig were enough to seal a famous win.

Scottish fans invade Wembley pitch (1977) -

Another victory for Scotland on England’s home turf. The Scot's victory at Wembley in 1977 triggered a fan invasion of the pitch afterwards and it is probably the most famous win they've had over England in their history.

There were memorable scenes after the game, with images of the Wembley goalposts being brought down by the fans in the celebrations and the fans truly made Wembley their own. Gordon McQueen and Kenny Dalglish were the goalscorers for the Scots on the afternoon and Scottish fans will remember this one extremely fondly.

Don Hutchinson earns win for the Scots (1999) -

Scotland’s most recent win against England game in 1999, after Don Hutchinson’s sole goal gave Scotland a memorable 1-0 victory at Wembley. The game was the second of a two-legged fixture, with England winning the first one 2-0 at Hampden Park.

Hutchinson’s headed goal in the first half left the English feeling extremely nervous during the second half of the game, however, and despite this not meaning a route into Euro 2000 for the Scots, it was still a memorable win at Wembley, and it remains their last win over England both at Wembley and in general.
