On this day in 1958 Aberdeen-born Denis Law became the youngest footballer to play for Scotland.
At the time playing for Huddersfield Town, he was 18 years and 7 months old when he played against Wales at Cardiff. Scotland won 3-0. Law went on to great things, scoring 236 goals as Manchester United's star striker, and in a bizarre irony, it was he who, wearing a Manchester City strip, scored the infamous goal that relegated United in 1974. He has recently been nominated Scotland's best player of the last 50 years by the SFA.
