Scotland national football team results (unofficial matches)


From 1870 to the present day, the Scotland national football team have played various matches that are not accorded the status of official (FIFA) internationals by the governing body, the Scottish Football Association.[1][2] These include early matches against England prior to the first-ever official international in 1872,[3] wartime fixtures between 1914–1919 and 1939–1946 when official competitions were suspended,[4] overseas tour matches played by a Scotland XI of varying strength and status,[5] and others as specified.

While some of the tour matches (involving players under consideration for the national team, some having already been capped at full level) could be seen as similar in status to those played by the Scotland B team, they have not been recorded officially as such.

World War I

By the end of the first year of fighting during World War I, most official football tournaments were suspended (a notable exception was the Scottish Football League Division One). International matches took place very occasionally during the duration of the war itself (July 1914 to November 1918) with Scotland only playing two, both military benefit matches against England. Following the Allied victory, regular sports events began to return, and Scotland played in two Victory International matches against Ireland followed by two against England in Spring 1919. Established competitions and fully recognised international matches resumed in the 1919–20 season.

1915

A fundraising match for the Belgian Refugee Relief Fund was played between an 'International XI' and an 'Edinburgh XI' in April 1915; the internationals included England's Joseph Hodkinson, Billy Meredith of Wales and William Crone who had played for the Irish League (Bobby Walker and Peter Nellies of Hearts also switched sides pre-match to cover for call-offs).[19][20]

1921 Tour of USA and Canada

A Scotland XI tour of Canada and the USA was organised by Glasgow club Third Lanark and the Dominion of Canada Football Association. Some local publications of the time listed the visitors as 'Third Lanark', others as 'Scotland'.[5][27][28][29][30]

  • Squad:
  • 25 matches were played, with 24 wins, 1 draw and 0 defeats. 1 match is detailed below:

  • Third Lanark undertook another summer tour in 1923, this time to South America (eight matches),[31] and again guest players from other clubs were invited, the most high-profile being Hughie Ferguson,[32] but although apparently some attempt was made to portray this as a 'Scotland team',[32] this was much less prevalent than for the 1921 tour and only one of the players had been capped at full level (Robert Orrock who played in one match ten years earlier).
1927
1927 Tour of USA and Canada

A Scotland XI tour of North America was organised by the SFA in 1927.[34][35][5]

  1. This match was played two days after another in Bergen, a 7–3 win for Scotland[36] which is considered official by the SFA but not by the Norwegian Football Federation.[37] Neither body considers the 4–0 match to be official.[38]
  • A friendly match between Scotland and the Netherlands in June 1929 was retrospectively considered not to be official by the Royal Dutch Football Association due to their disapproval of professionalism in the sport – all the Scotland players were professionals.[39][40] The SFA regards it as official.[41]

1935 Tour of USA and Canada

A Scotland XI tour of North America was organised by the SFA in 1935.[5][47][48][49][50]

World War II

Official football tournaments were suspended soon after the outbreak of World War II in Autumn 1939. International matches took place occasionally during the duration of the war itself, with Scotland playing against England 15 times, a team representing the Republic of Ireland once, and various branches of the British armed forces who could call on strong squads of professional players called into service.[58] In addition, there were six 'Army Internationals' nominally between Scotland and England, but with the players selected from members of the military stationed in each country regardless of their heritage (the 'Army in England' team won five of these, with one draw).[58][23]

When the conflict ended in May 1945 with an Allied victory, regular sports events began to return, and Scotland participated in, and won, the 1945–46 British Victory Home Championship. Two further Victory International matches in 1946 against Belgium[59][60] and Switzerland[61][62] are considered to have full international status.[63] All established competitions and fully recognised international matches resumed in the 1946–47 season, the outset of which included one further unofficial England v Scotland match to raise funds for those affected by the Burnden Park disaster earlier that year.[64]

  1. After two English players were injured in a traffic accident on their way to the match, two players from the local club Newcastle United who had been in the crowd as spectators appeared for England, including Tommy Pearson, a Scot who later also appeared for his native country.[21][57]

    1. This was an 'Anglo-African' team of players from South Africa who were based at clubs in the United Kingdom, including two Rangers players, Johnny Hubbard and Don Kitchenbrand. As Scotland did not select any Rangers players, many of the crowd at Ibrox opted to cheer for South Africa on the night. It was a warm-up for Scotland's 1955–56 British Home Championship decider against England a few weeks later; reports indicated the most impressive player was South Africa's defender John Hewie,[116] who was eligible for Scotland and made his debut in the England match,[117] along with Scottish goalscorer Graham Leggat who had also played at Ibrox.

As Scotland did not select any Rangers players, many of the crowd at Ibrox opted to cheer for South Africa on the night. It was a warm-up for Scotland's 1955–56 British Home Championship decider against England a few weeks later; reports indicated the most impressive player was South Africa's defender John Hewie,[116] who was eligible for Scotland and made his debut in the England match,[117] along with Scottish goalscorer Graham Leggat who had also played at Ibrox.
