Celtic inside right Bobby Collins scored a goal in each half as Scotland won the first meeting between the teams, which formed part of the visitors’ final preparations for the 1958 World Cup finals in Sweden.

Collins, now with Leeds, also played in this encounter, which was Jock Stein’s first match in charge of Scotland. Denis Law earned Scotland a point in the World Cup qualifier when he equalised in the 76th minute but Scotland’s failure to beat the Poles in the group meant they finished behind Italy and missed out on the finals in England.

Current manager Gordon Strachan was in the Scotland team that lost narrowly in a friendly during Stein’s second spell in charge. A Scotland strikeforce featuring Kenny Dalglish, Joe Jordan and Steve Archibald was overshadowed by Poland great Zbigniew Boniek, whose penalty-box shot deflected in off Willie Miller.

Scott Booth earned Scotland a draw in a friendly which saw Craig Brown hand debuts to seven players – Barry Nicholson, Gavin Rae, Charlie Miller, John O’Neil, Kenny Miller, Andy McLaren and Steven Caldwell. Radoslaw Kaluzny headed the hosts in front, arguably from an offside position, when he beat Neil Sullivan to a free kick but Booth’s emphatic penalty gave a makeshift Scotland an unlikely draw.

The teams were drawn in the same European championship qualifying group just after arranging a friendly this year and Scotland gave themselves a morale boost ahead of the real thing when Scott Brown thundered home a late left-footed strike from 18 yards, although the hosts were missing the injured Robert Lewandowski.
