The auld enemy

The England-Scotland football match is the oldest fixture in international football, and its fiercest rivalry – and this week’s Alex Salmond Show comes from Wembley Stadium. Friday’s showdown has England as firm favourites, but in the early days of the beautiful game, it was Scotland who were the dominant side with Andrew Watson, the world’s first black international footballer, leading his Scotland team to a 6-1 triumph. Alex interviews England legends John Barnes and Mark Walters, football historian Llew Walker, former Scotland women’s captain Ifeoma Dieke, and top pundit Jim Spence about football – and the politics of England against Scotland.
