A sly smile spread on every Scot face, mean , broody and dark

Viciously, no mercy, ripped to shreds like a bonito shark

Engulfed in the roar of a united nation

Nonetheless personified, by the immeasurable Alan Hutton

The superstitious screamed down the rafters, a wounded prey they could smell

The famous victory never materialised leaving many irate

Panucci scored with many a head scratching

Just what was that legend about Azzurri superstition?
