Lance Zeno was still a little banged up and very rusty. The former is a reality of his occupation, pro football, the latter can keep you from working. Being a bit run down, Zeno realized his mind and body needed work. His employer agreed, so Zeno backed up and bolted for that noted football training ground . . . Scotland? The former Fountain Valley High and UCLA standout is under contract with the St. Louis Rams.

The contrast could not be more striking, the differences between them could hardly be more pronounced. On the one side, wearing dark blue and hailing from the chilly climes of northern Europe, come the Scots, their World Cup history a tattered banner full of defeats and disappointments. On the other side, resplendent in the sun-yellow uniforms that are now world famous, come the Brazilians, their World Cup history a tapestry woven with threads of quicksilver talent and golden trophies.

What the United States couldn't manage, Costa Rica did. The Costa Ricans, who finished ahead of the Americans in qualifying for the World Cup, were as lightly regarded as the U.S. team. But in their debut among the elite of soccer, they got a goal from Juan Cayasso on a superb feed from Claudio Jara and outstanding goalkeeping by Luis Conejo for a 1-0 victory over Scotland Monday. In its opener Sunday, the United States was beaten badly by Czechoslovakia, 5-1.

All that England and Scotland must do to clinch berths in soccer's 24-team World Cup next year in Italy is tie in tonight's qualifying games. But while their opponents are not having good years, both are playing at home and expecting to extend the suspense for the English and the Scots. England meets Poland and its fanatical fans in the mining city of Katowice, while Scotland faces a wounded but determined French team in Paris.

It is a beautiful Saturday afternoon, Day 1 of the United Scottish Society's 59th annual Highland Gathering and Festival, and the Orange County Fairgrounds are alive with a wild assortment of sights and sounds. Over here is a 40ish-looking couple, husband and wife, and you know right away who wears the pants in the family. Hers are a nice pair of shorts.

England and Scotland, the rose and the thistle, are neighbors in the same kingdom. But when it comes to soccer, forget brotherhood. Think instead of flashing swords and screaming blue-painted faces. Scots and English celebrate their first soccer encounter in seven years at London's Wembley Stadium this afternoon as the dramatic--and potentially violent--centerpiece of Euro 96, a 16-nation soccer extravaganza to crown a continental champion.
