Donald Trump was still at school and Lyndon Johnson the president of the USA last time a Huddersfield Town player featured in an England versus Scotland clash.Ray Wilson
was the man in question, with his 24th appearance for the Three Lions coming at Hampden Park on Saturday, April 11, 1964.
These days the Glasgow ground is an all-seater 51,866-capacity stadium.
In its earlier form, it was a vast, open and mainly terraced ground capable of holding huge crowds.
When left-back Wilson ran out to play for England against the old enemy in the 1964 Home Internationals, it was in front of 133,245!
Among the players opposing Wilson was his old Town teammate Denis Law, of Manchester United.
A tight match was settled by a goal from Dundee forward Alan Gilzean in the 72nd minute.
The defeat meant Alf Ramsey’s side had to share the title with Scotland and Northern Ireland.
All three sides beat Wales and won one and lost one of their other two games.
There were no international breaks in those days, with the tournament spread over the season.
As Scotland were beating England, Town were suffering a 2-0 home defeat by Manchester City.
Wilson’s place for the Second Division (now Championship) clash at Leeds Road was taken by Bob Parker.
Town, managed by Eddie Boot, finished 12th in the table.
And that summer, prize asset Wilson, who was to win the World Cup with England two years later, was sold to Everton.
Aged 29 and after 12 years with Town and 30 caps, he moved for £40,000 plus Republic of Ireland international Mick Meagan, who switched to Leeds Road in part exchange.
Town weren’t the only club to lose a star player.
Scotland scorer Gilzean joined Tottenham Hotspur for £72,500 in December 1964.
The 11 on duty for England against Scotland were Gordon Banks (Leicester City, Jimmy Armfield (Blackpool), Wilson, Gordon Milne (Liverpool), Maurice Norman (Tottenham), Bobby Moore (West Ham United), Terry Paine (Southampton), Roger Hunt (Liverpool), George Eastham (Arsenal), Johnny Byrne (West Ham United) and Bobby Charlton (Manchester United).
The Scotland side was Campbell Forsyth (Kilmarnock), Alex Hamilton (Dundee), Jim Kennedy (Celtic), John Greig (Rangers), Billy McNeil (Celtic), Jim Baxter (Rangers), Willie Henderson (Rangers), John White (Tottenham), Gilzean, Law, Davie Wilson (Rangers).
There have been 112 previous meetings, stretching back to 1872.
Going into the Friday night World Cup qualifier at Wembley, England have won 47 and Scotland 41.
