Football: `We're in touch but it is an uphill battle'
EURO 2000: SCOTLAND V ENGLAND
Sunday 14 November 1999
Craig Brown, Scotland manager
IF YOU had sat down and you wanted to make a film of how it would go, then this would have been it. We could have added a third, but I suppose that's being a bit too greedy. But it's not all over. They've got to score three goals at Wembley to beat us, which is very tough. But we've come here today and we've started for the first time, under my reign, to play the way I want to play - now we can improve on that.
Kevin Keegan, England manager
THE MANAGER wanted me to get forward as much as I could. I didn't think about the goals. I got booked for celebrating my first goal - it was a silly thing for me to do. I just held my hands up after I scored the second goal.
Paul Scholes, England's goalscorer
WE WORKED tirelessly but didn't get the rub of the green in the box. On the first goal Scholes had `gone'. I got caught flat-footed. He did that against Poland - he's very good at it. It will have to be a ridiculously impressive performance by us at Wembley.
Colin Hendry, Scotland captain
WE'RE VERY pleased with our performance, particularly in the first half when the damage was done. We've done a helluva job in what was a tough atmosphere. But it's only half-time because we've done one job and we've still got a second to do. We will attack on Wednesday night. We are not made to go for a draw.
Alan Shearer, England captain
