Scottish fans dismayed by their countries failure to beat Norway can console themselves with the fact that they did their bit for charity.
Around 50,000 supporters at Hampden neglected their obligatory pie and Bovril at half-time to take part in a recording of 1982 World Cup hit, “We Have a Dream”, shown in this YouTube video, led by the original singer John Gordon Sinclair, which shall be released for BBC Children in Need.
The single, available for download now, will be available in shops on November 10th. “Gregory’s Girl” star Sinclair shall be joined on the single by guests including former Scotland striker Ally McCoist and movie legend Samuel L. Jackson.
It was a small piece of consolation for supporters who were disappointed by the team’s failure to defeat the Norwegians, a poor performance summed up by Chris Iwelumo’s shocking miss, shown on this YouTube video. However upon reflection members of the Tartan Army were at least proud to have done their bit.
Darren Hendry, from The East of Scotland Tartan Army, said: “Obviously it was a disappointing day but to know that we did our bit for charity is good. It helps cement our place as the greatest supporters in the world.”
This isn’t the first time the Tartan Army has taken part in a charity single. They were recorded singing “Loch Lomond” at half-time of the international versus Ukraine, with proceeds also going to Children in Need.
