Scotland v Czech Republic 3rd Sept 2011

Match Report


On Saturday I went with my Crannog worker Susan, to see Scotland play at Hampden. I have been to Hampden before but not to see a Scotland game.  I wore my Scotland top that I was bought.

We managed not to get lost on the way there and when we arrived it was already really, really busy. Took us over an hour to get through the traffic.mfsm-09-2011-report


My seat was in the North stand and quite close to the pitch so I had a good view. The crowd made a lot of noise and backed Scotland. Hardly any Czech fans were there.

The Scotland fans were all dressed in kilts and Scotland tops.

When Oh Flower of  Scotland was played everyone was singing really loud. They were really enthusiastic but were dreadful at singing!


I think Scotland played quite shocking in the first half until Kenny Millar scored just before half time. I missed the first goal because I was away getting a Hampden pie but there wasn’t any left so I just bought  a bag of sweets.

At half time the crowds were chanting and singing and some were quite drunk.

I then went to buy a pie again and was shocked at the price but had spending money anyway so bought 2 and a coke.


The 2nd half of the game improved. It was much more exciting as Czech Republic got a goal so Scotland had to pick up their game to try and win the match. In the 83rd minute Darren Fletcher scored the winning goal for Scotland until minutes later a Czech player dived in the 18 yard box but still got a penalty. Everyone was chanting ‘Cheats!’.


There was no time for Scotland to score again even though we had a disallowed penalty in extra time. The final score was 2-2.


It took us ages to get out of Glasgow as Susan couldn’t remember where the car was parked!


I really enjoyed the day out and appreciate the chance to go and see my home country play even if they didn’t win.
