Description

The 1970s saw a change in the fortunes of the Scottish national side. Having exited undefeated at the 1974 World Cup in West Germany, the sobering trip to Argentina 78 prompted more realistic future expectations. Extensively researched, Scotland in the 70s examines the decade's 89 matches in depth, with the help of countless star contributors.
