A great moment in journalism, no. But a great moment in the history of Scottish football? Very possibly, judging from the gyrations and contortions of BBC broadcaster Stuart Cosgrove, perched in the press section high atop Stade de France, as Scotland's John Collins prepares for a potential game-tying penalty kick in Wednesday's World Cup opener against Brazil.
