    I gave up & Googled: Andy Beattie resigned because the SFA gave him a squad of 11 players. How tight is that?!?!

    Ok:

    This has happened twice to date, once very famously, but before on an occasion of somewhat less renown in Anglophone countries. What am I talking about?

    Is it to do with the trophy going AWOL?

    and the other two members of the squad were Bobby Evans and George Hamilton.

    Team vs. Austria and vs.Uruguay. Take a look at the given shirt numbers and then this.

    No one? Ok, first clue:

    When it happened in 1966 Jackie Milburn would've been very proud.

    Fair enough.
    Actually, I'd never realised that Docherty and Ormond both played for Scotland, as well as managing them, so I learnt something useful there.

    Still no-one?

    Didn't think my clue was that cryptic!

    Ok:

    Wor Jackie was the uncle of the two players who achieved this in 1966

    OK, so we're talking about 2 brothers in the winning side. Apart from the Charltons, I don't *think* that's happened in my lifetime and I'm too busy at present to check planetworldcup. Maybe one of the Italian sides in the 30's?
