  • Description

    AFTER SCOTLAND BEAT ENGLAND 3-2 IN A THRILL-PACKED EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP CUP QUALIFYING MATCH AT WEMBLEY, NEAR LONDON, TODAY (SATURDAY), EXUBERANT SCOTTISH FANS INVADED THE PITCH. THE SCENES WERE UNPRECEDENTED IN THE HISTORY OF THE FAMOUS STADIUM.

    A CORDON OF POLICEMEN COLLAPSED UNDER THE WEIGHT OF THOUSANDS OF SCOTTISH FANS, WAVING FLAGS DISPLAYING THE RED AND GOLD LION OF SCOTLAND.

    POLICE TUSSLED WITH THE JUBILANT FANS, TRYING TO HOLD THEM BACK, BUT THEY FAILED. JUBILANT SCOTSMEN DANCED A VICTORY JIG ON THE PITCH, AND ONE WAS SEEN TO DIG UP A PIECE OF THE RENOWNED WEMBLEY TURF AND STEAL AWAY WITH IT IN HIS POCKET.

    WHILE MOST OF THE FANS WAVED BANNERS WITH THE WORD "SCOTLAND" AND OTHER SIMILAR SLOGANS ON THEM, ONE MAN HELD HIGH A BANNER BEARING THE WORDS "REPENT AND TURN TO GOD".

    TONIGHT IN LONDON, THE SCOTS SUPPORTERS ARE CONTINUING CELEBRATING THEIR TEAM'S VICTORY IN GIVING ENGLAND ITS FIRST DEFEAT IN 19 MATCHES.
