Football, the most popular sport in the world took its first steps in the international arena on 30th November 1872 when the first ever official international match took place between Scotland and England. The game was played at Scotland’s Hamilton Crescent in the city of Patrick. Alas! for the crowd of 4000, it ended in a draw(0-0).

The game was presided over by a Scottish referee, William Keay. Every player in the Scotland team belonged to the then leading Scottish club of Queen’s Park. While, the Englishmen came from as many as nine clubs, three of them belonged to Oxford University.
