World Cup Classic goals: David Narey 1982

Famously described as a toe poke by big chinned gobshite Jimmy Hill, Narey leathered home this opener versus Brazil in 1982. It sparked a brief belief that we might actually beat Brazil in football’s grandest tournament.

As per usual the hubris was cruelly dashed as Brazil got upset and ripped 4 past Alan Rough without reply.

Many Scots prefer the famous Archie Gemmil mazy versus Holland in 1978 but that is mainly to do with it’s inclusion in Trainspotting. For me, Narey’s is the best.
