With a number of Scottish clubs unexpectedly reaching final stages of various European cups, a number of players had to pull out from the touring team to help their clubs. The Scotland XI played nine matches and won them all. <hr> <h4>Summary</h4> <pre> DATE VENUE OPPOSITION RESULT 16- 5 Tel Aviv Israel 2-1 W 25- 5 Hong Kong Hong Kong 4-1 W 28- 5 Sydney Australia 1-0 W 31- 5 Adelaide Australia 2-1 W 3- 6 Melbourne Australia 2-0 W 5- 6 Wellington New Zealand U-23 7-2 W 8- 6 Auckland Auckland XI 4-0 W 10- 6 Vancouver Vancouver XI 4-1 W 13- 6 Winnipeg Canada 7-2 W </pre> <hr> <h4>Details</h4> <pre> 16/05/1967, Tel Aviv, Ramat-Gan National Stadium, 27000 ISRAEL 1 (Giora Spiegel 40') SCOTLAND XI 2 (Willie Morgan 21', Eddie Colquhoun 83') Israel: Itzik Visoker, Yehoshua Feigenbaum, Itzhak Droker, Menahem Bello, Moshe Litzinski, Mordechai Piker, Rahamim Talbi, Giora Spiegel, Yehezkel Hazoun, Moshe Assis (George Borba), Reuven Young.

The Times of London has Eddie Colquhoun scoring the winning goal. <p> Some sources have Auckland as scoring a goal at Newmarket Park. These appear to be incorrect. <p> Eddie McCreadie of Chelsea and Frank McLintock of Arsenal were selected to tour but both withdrew owing to injury. Ian Ure was injured in the match in Israel and returned home. The Kilmarnock duo of Jackie McGrory and Tommy McLean joined the touring team in Australia as replacements. <p> Seven of the Scotland XI did not play for their country in full internationals. These were Alan Anderson, Alex Ferguson, Harry Hood, Harry Thomson, Hugh Tinney, Jim Townsend and John Woodward. <p> Andy Penman had not yet made his debut for Rangers. He had been signed at the end of the 1966-1967 season from Dundee. <p> Team manager Bobby Brown was the former Rangers and Scotland goalkeeper. <p> <HR> <A NAME="about"><H2>About this document</H2></A> <p><a href="../sources.html">Sources</a>: [Smi 68], The Press (Christchurch, NZ), <a href="http://www.ozfootball.net/">http://www.ozfootball.net/</a>, various RSSSF pages <P>Prepared and maintained by <I>Stephen Bell and Andre Zlotkowski</I> for the <A HREF="../nersssf.html">Rec.Sport.Soccer Statistics Foundation</A> <P><I> Authors: Stephen Bell (<a href="mailto:StephenAndrewBell@talktalk.net">StephenAndrewBell@talktalk.net</a>) and Andre Zlotkowski (<a href="mailto:nzfooty@hotmail.com">nzfooty@hotmail.com</a>) <BR> Last updated: 6 Jun 2008<BR></I> <P> <B>(C) Copyright Stephen Bell, Andre Zlotkowski and RSSSF 2007/08</B><BR> You are free to copy this document in whole or part provided that proper acknowledgement is given to the authors.
