Back in 1961, England beat Scotland a whopping 9-3 at Wembley Stadium. English striker Jimmy Greaves scored a hat-trick, with Scottish goalkeeper Frank Haffey conceding five goals in 11 minutes in the second half! England Captain Johnny Haynes scored twice. Here's some of the team carrying the very happy captain "Haynsie" with the trophy.
England didn't have it so easy in 1967. They'd won the World Cup the year before and were unbeaten in their previous 19 games. But Scotland burst their bubble. Here's England's 'keeper Gordon Banks trying to reach a shot. Scotland's Jim Baxter famously played keepie-uppie down the wing as they went on to beat England 3-2.
Ten years later, Scotland won again at Wembley, beating England 2-1. After the match, Scottish football fans - also known as the Tartan Army - celebrated by invading the pitch. Oh dear, in their excitement they managed to break the goalpost!
During the European Championships in England 1996, the home side beat Scotland 2-0. The match was pretty tense with England goalkeeper David Seaman saving a penalty and Paul Gascoigne scoring a spectacular second goal after Alan Shearer hit home with a header.

In 1999, England and Scotland faced each other in a home-and-away play off for a place at the Euro 2000 tournament. England won the first match at Hampden Park in Glasgow 0-2, with both goals being scored by Paul Scholes. But what about the next leg...?
In the second leg at Wembley it was Scotland who came out on top after Don Hutchison's header. It ended 0-1. But thanks to a penalty save by David Seaman, it was England who went through 2-1 on aggregate. That was the last competitive match between the two - and now, 17 years and a few friendlies later, who will come out on top in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers?
