It was lovely to be asked to write a piece for the Sunday Post today. The remit was France 98 and I wrote about my memories of watching my children watch the Scotland men’s team play their opening match against Brazil. I had the absolute honour to travel to France to follow Scotland’s women’s team in the World Cup in 2019 but back in 1998 we thought big tournaments where there for the taking.
