FIFA World Cup 1982 Group 6

 

fifa world cup 1982 posterBrazil had a very strong attacking team and were fancied to do well. The familiar CBF badge was updated on their shirts and now showed the Jules Rimet Trophy, which they held in perpetuity. Despite their humiliating performance in Argentina four years earlier, Scotland appeared once again although expectations were rather more modest under the management of Jock Stein.

With quarter of an hour played, a massive clearance and a defensive error allowed Joe Jordan in to put Scotland into the lead. Chivadze equalised on the hour. In the 84th minute two Scottish players got in each others way and failed to clear a speculative long ball to let Shengelia through on the left and he rounded the Scottish 'keeper before slotting the ball home. Three minutes later Graeme Souness beat two defenders before placing the ball inside the post from the edge of the area. The Soviets held on as Scotland mounted a last, desperate assault.
