Although no doubt long forgotten as all “international friendlies” are, Scotlands 1-0 loss to the soon to be departed East Germany just before Italia 90 is still a semi famous game in our house. Mostly because it was on the nascent Sky Sports on delayed coverage and because I think England lost they got grumpy and forgot to do the “look away now” thing, thus ruining a nice night on the bevvy for my Dad and my cousin. This is also an oddly downbeat document – especially compared to some of our other World Cup send off programmes (especially the dreaded 78 ones). Would a good dose of Roxburgh pragmatism turn our fortunes around? Well know – but they did warn us about Cayasso in fairness…
