International Career (Scotland)


Caps: 22

Goals: 6

International Debut: September 12th, 1979 v. Peru

Cooper made his international debut for Scotland under-21s in the 1976–77 season in a 0–0 draw versus the Czech Republic in Pilsen.[6] He won another three caps that season, versus Wales, Switzerland and England.

Cooper's debut for the full national side was on 12 September 1979 in a 1–1 draw in a friendly with Peru at Hampden Park. He played for the national team again the following month in a 1–1 draw at home to Austria in the Euro 1980 qualifiers, but after that he wasn't capped again for over four years. Cooper returned to the national team on 28 February 1984, scoring against Wales in a 2–1 Home Championship win, and was on the scoresheet for Scotland again later in the year in a 6–1 friendly win over Yugoslavia.

Cooper became a regular in the Scotland team and prior to the 1986 World Cup Finals, played in 11 consecutive games. He played in the crucial match against Wales at Ninian Park, coming on as substitute for Gordon Strachan and scoring an equalising penalty, which was instrumental in Scotland's ultimately successful World Cup qualifying campaign. Cooper also scored in a 2–0 win against Australia in the last qualification play-off, and made two appearances in the Finals in Mexico.

Cooper scored his final two goals (from six in total) for the Scottish senior side on 12 November 1986 in a 3–0 home win over Luxembourg in the Euro 88 qualifiers. He was capped twice for Scotland as a Motherwell player, the last of his 22 caps earned on 16 May 1990 in a friendly against Egypt at Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen, which the Egyptians won 3–1.[7] An injury precluded him from being selected for the Scotland squad for the 1990 FIFA World Cup Finals
