Sports shops have been sending the strips by mail order while some fans arranged city breaks to buy them in person before their national side kicks off their World Cup campaign. Iceland fans are hoping to get their shirts delivered from Scotland before they take on Argentina on Saturday. Director of Greaves Sports in Glasgow, Miller Greaves, said orders have been busy and a group of Icelandic women dropped into the store last week. They were amazed by the cost. They told me football shirts are very expensive in their homeland due to taxes and other things. It must work out cheaper for them.

By playing exhibition matches throughout the country, Queen's Park were responsible for popularising what would become Scotland's national sport. In the club organised what is now recognised as the first international football match against England. The Scottish Football Association was formed the following year. Although Scotland wore navy blue jerseys in that first game it took some time before these became the regular first choice and a number of other combinations were tried before the First World War. On 5 March the world's first international association football match was played at Hamilton Crescent in Partick, Glasgow, home of the West of Scotland Cricket Club.
