His only touch was a penalty he took

Can see where you're all going and are in the wrong direction. fifexile is closest in part.

Further clues- Mr Adams played for a Scottish club. West Germany (the country as opposed to the national team) features twice in this unique event.

Did Alan Evans go in goal for Aston Villa after original keeper (Rimmer?) Was injured and sub keeper wasn't ready? 

Clutching at straws here! Hoping Evans played in Scotland at some point!

No joy. 

Final clues. Yes it's to do with replacing the regular keeper. It involves a Scottish Club playing in the European Cup. The uniqueness has nothing to do with the result or anything that happened during the game, Entirely to do with Mr Adams himself. 

Answer coming up soon. Come on, team, you can do better than this.

Ok. Sadly no one got this one.

Answer. Goalkeeper Willie Adams, despite playing in the European Cup for Hibernian only ever played that ONE senior game in his entire career. He thus never played a single senior domestic game. His one game was in goals for Hibernian in a 1955 European Cup match. Here's a comprehensive account of his career as a senior footballer...https://fitbastats.com/hibs/player.php?playerid=6115

How this came about. It's 1955. Hibs won their away leg to Rot-Weiss Essen 4-0. Hibs knowing the tie was effectively won decided not to go to the expense of bringing their regular keeper, Tommy Younger,  back from West Germany where he was doing his National Service. Hibs back up goalie also became unavailable, so they signed Willie Adams from East Lothian club Ormiston Primrose. Hibs drew the return leg 1-1 and progressed in the competition. 

Willie Adams never played another game for Hibs or apparently anyone else and left the club at the end of that season.

Which two players, currently playing, have scored a goal in EVERY minute of the first half of a match-45 mins-and second half of a match-45 mins, over the course of their careers?

Ronaldo is correct for one of them. His one goal every minute of 90 video is on-line somewhere. But, who is the other?

Juan Alegria & Alex Jakubiak? 

Er….no and…no!

On Saturday 20 March, 1976, a player in one of the two teams, did something very unusual in an English First Division match, and something he would prefer to forget! a) Who was the player? b) What did he do?

Came on to the pitch as a substitute for the wrong team?

Easy one. Chris Nichol scored all 4 goals in Villa’s 2-2 draw with Leicester

Correct. Apparently, on the full time whistle, he cheekily asked the ref for the match ball, but as it was the official’s final match before retiring, CN didn’t get it! Nicholl is always bedevilled with questions about this in interviews and from punters and says he can never ‘live it down.’ But, those who remember will know he played many games for his club and was an internationalist with N Ireland. He was no bad player!
