A Fact

Scotland have played four full international matches at Easter Road, all since 1998. These have been friendly matches against less attractive opposition where a relatively small crowd is expected, and it has therefore been unnecessary to play the match at Hampden Park. The Scotland under-21 team also sometimes play matches at Easter Road. This happened most recently when Scotland beat Lithuania under-21s 3–0 in October 2007The most recent full international played at the stadium was a friendly match played between South Korea and Ghana in advance of the 2006 World Cup This match came about because South Korea (coached by the former Rangers manager Dick Advocaat) had used Rangers' training ground as a pre-tournament training base, and wanted matches to complete this training process. This match meant that international stars such as Michael Essien, Stephen Appiah and Park Ji-Sung played at the ground. Ghana won the match 3–1

  2. How come you get pictures of good looking German girls but when you come to Edinburgh all you take is a picture of a big fat arse?

  3. You're right the attendance figure of 14,000+ is absolutely ridiculous

  4. I actually remember the BBC report and how surprised I was at the high figure for a CIS Cup game in August against a 1st division team. I work in Greenock and remember some happy faces the day after. The game I attended at Easter Road against Rangers had an official attendance of less than 14k http://myfootballtravels.blogspot.com/2009/06/easter-road-hibernian-v-rangers.html
