Scotland first took on Australia 27 years ago in emotional circumstances. Following the death of Scotland manager Jock Stein during the final FIFA World Cup 1986 qualifying match against Wales, his assistant Alex Ferguson led the side into the play-off against Australia.
Goals from Davie Cooper and Frank McAvennie sealed a Scotland victory at Hampden Park on 20 November 1985, while a 0-0 draw in Melbourne on 4 December was enough to send Scotland to the World Cup Finals in Mexico.
The two sides have since met in two friendly matches at Hampden Park. Ally McCoist got the winning goal in a 1-0 victory on 27 March 1996, while Brett Emerton and David Zdrilic sealed a 2-0 win for Australia on 15 November 2000.
