Alan McRae hopes he’s about to witness another Wembley day the Tartan Army will never forget.
The Aberdonian president of the SFA will be in the VIP seats when Scotland take on England in London in a World Cup qualifier on Friday.
McRae, however, has also tasted what it’s like to be on the terraces with the rest of the Tartan Army when their nation won at the home of English football.
The most memorable was in 1967, when the Scots beat the Auld Enemy 3-2 in the old Home Nations tournament.
That match was the first England had lost since winning the World Cup at Wembley the year before.
The Tartan Army crowned their team as the unofficial world champions and the result is brought up every time the two countries meet.
McRae reckons a win on Friday would be greeted just as warmly by the Tartan Army as that famous one from 49 years ago.
“It would certainly mean as much to me,” said McRae.
“It’s a World Cup qualifier as well, which makes it a lot bigger game than the one in 1967.
“Winning it would give the whole country a lift, just as it did when we beat England when they were world champions.
“It would put us right back in the mix in the fight to qualify from our group.
“Being there in 1967 was very special.
“I accept it’s the new Wembley we will be playing at on Friday.
“But it’s the home of English football, so any win there would mean a lot to everyone back home in Scotland.
“Hopefully this will be the start of a run of positive results for Scotland there.”
