England and Scotland renew acquaintances next month in the Teenage Cancer Trust International at Wembley and former captains Alan Shearer and Colin Hendry have been recalling the last matches between the two.
When Scotland head south to Wembley on Wednesday 14 August, it will be the first meeting between the nations since 1999, when they were brought together in a two-legged play-off for a spot in the European Championship Finals of 2000.
caught up with Shearer
and Hendry to show them some of the highlights from both legs and get their memories on the games.
The first match at Hampden Park saw Kevin Keegan’s Three Lions overcome a fierce atmosphere in Glasgow to build-up a two goal lead thanks to a brace from Paul Scholes
Hendry led his side out for that game in front of a passionate home crowd and said: "When you play in games like those, you really don't need much to be said to you in order to think about or to raise your game or tempo.
"Just the fact that you're involved in a fixture like that, you soon know what it's about.
"It's a great feat for anyone involved to be able to captain your country, it's one of the greatest things you can have the honour of doing."
The result at Hampden gave England a strong advantage for the second leg at Wembley and it proved crucial too, as Don Hutchison’s first-half goal gave the Scots hope.
But they couldn’t turn it around and even though it meant a home defeat for England against their closest rivals, it was also a time to celebrate with qualification for the Euros in Belgium and Netherlands confirmed.
Shearer added: "After managing to win the first one, there was maybe a bit of complacency at Wembley, I'm not quite sure.
"We probably played too cautiously and the result went against us.
"So we were happy to have qualified but there was huge disappointment that we'd lost to Scotland at Wembley."
