Background: Winding up their pre World Cup series of international matches, Scotland scored a surprise 2-1 victory over Poland in Warsaw on Sunday, June 1st.
Their victory came mainly because of the efforts of Bobby Collins and Tommy Younger coupled with the very bad shooting of the Polish forwards.
Poland produced most of the mid-field class, but their finishing was poor and when they did shoot straight they could not beat Younger.
Celtic's Bobby Collins put Scotland in front in the 21st minute when he picked up a through ball from right winger Graham Leggatt and crashed in a low shot.
This heartened the Scots who had been outpaced, and Jimmy Murray, Collins and Leggatt all had good chances well saved.
Eight minutes after the resumption, Bobby Collins scored with a pile-driving shot from 40 yards. The Polish goal keeper got a hand to it but fell back into the net with the ball.
It was while Leggatt was off the field with a mouth injury that Poland put on the pressure and six minutes from time they scored through veteran inside-left, Cieslik, who put the ball just inside the post from 20 yards.
After Younger had made a brilliant save from Cieslik a few minutes later, Scotland regained control of the game and nearly went further ahead when the Polish goal keeper just managed to save a Mudie header near the upright.
Scottish F. A. comments afterwards indicated that they were quite satisfied with the showing of their team with the World Cup series in view.
