    Very close to a flag for that Len!
    Ireland didn't qualify for 2006, not even close.

    Good guess, but no.
    5 - Jorge Costa?
    No.
  • 1. Probably doing him a massive injustice but I'll guess at John Hewie 1958 for Scotland. No idea as to opposition!

    No, but I did consider building a question around him.

    Yep. Can anyone name the year, opposition and final score?
    I know it was in 2002. I can’t remember the score or the oppo. I’ll resist the temptation to google the answer.

    My mistake, Jorge Costa is the answer to Q1!

    2002 is the answer.

    The final score will be hard to get, so I'll say Portugal lost the game 3-2.

    My mistake, Jorge Costa is the answer to Q5.

    Corrected.

    This is going well...
  • so just to clarify we are looking for the opposition now in a game in 2002 when Portugal lost 3-2 and Costa scored an own goal... We all on the same page here?
