Coach: Scot Gemmill
02/01/71
"We worked hard to get to the final tournament and I told the players to go home with their heads held high because of that big achievement. We had to find the mental strength to recover from a heavy defeat [5-0 against France] in the opening match and the players reacted with much-improved, much more competitive performances in the other two games. So I had no complaints and the important thing was to make sure the players went home better for the experience."

Scotland team analysis

Scotland team analysis

• 4-3-3 with regular switches to 4-4-2 with midfield diamond
• Compact, disciplined back four shielded by single screening midfielder
• Attacks based on direct, long passing to striker or wingers
• Good crossing, game-opening diagonal passes, overlapping full-backs
• Intense pressure in middle third; often forward solo runs after winning ball
• No preference for building from back; keeper generally played long
• Strong, hard-working players with commitment and winning mentality
