Oslo, Wednesday 20th August 2003 and both sides hold aloft red cards before the kick off, whilst an anti-racist statement is announced over the tanoy. The powerful message showed that even opposing teams are united in their stance against racism. This uniquely coordinated event was organised by the UK and Norwegian Show Racism The Red Card groups.
“Racism has no place in football or in society and the Scottish and Norwegian Football Associations are to the forefront of trying to eliminate this backward prejudice from our beautiful game.” (Tanoy message)
The friendly ended in a 0-0 draw.
