1935–36 British Home Championship

The 1935-36 British Home Championship was a football tournament played between the British Home Nations during the 1935–36 season. It was won by Scotland after a close contest between Scotland, Wales and England. England began the tournament the stronger team, with a 3–1 win over Ireland in Belfast while Scotland struggled to a 1–1 draw with Wales. Scotland recovered to beat Ireland in their second match whilst England dropped position after defeat by Wales. Wales and Ireland played a tough, high-scoring game which might have given Wales the title, but was ultimately won by the Irish, whilst Scotland came to London knowing that only a win would be enough to give them the trophy. In a furious attacking game the end result; 1–1, was enough to give Scotland an undisputed tournament success.
