Description:
In the 1928 British Home Championship, the Scotland national football team defeated England 5–1 at Wembley. The performance of the Scotland team that day led to them being dubbed the Wembley Wizards.

Background

Scotland had failed to win either of their previous matches in the 1928 British Home Championship, losing 1–0 to Ireland at Hampden Park and drawing 2–2 with Wales in Wrexham. England had lost their first two games, 2–0 to Ireland in Belfast and 2–1 in Burnley to the eventual champions Wales. England's recent record against Scotland was poor having only won once against Scotland in the 1920s, albeit that was the most recent match, a 2–1 win at Hampden in the 1927 British Home Championship that gave England a share of the championship with Scotland.
