    Sorry to hear that Helmut Haller has died. I was at the match that night in the Volksparkstadion. Am I right in thinking that Tommy Gemmell got a red card for booting Haller up the jacksie in the last few minutes? Such a long time ago. Scotland were a good team in those days.

      I don’t have that info, but if you were there surely it was the way you said it. This was a very tough game for Germany. Scotland was a very strong team in the 70s, suffice to say he was a very competitive team in the 1974 World Cup (although in 1978 didn’t make much success despite having a very good squad as well).
