    Match Report

England beat Wales, at Liverpool, yesterday, by one goal to none. There were 35,000 spectators.

The winning goal was scored soon after the start of the match, which, although it was played on a dry, firm turf, never reached a high standard...

Kelly scored the one goal of the match less than three minutes from the start ; the ball was put neatly to him by Max Woosnam from a free kick, and Kelly shot just inside one of the posts...

During the last half hour, England not only had most of the play, as they had had all through, but they found their form as individuals and combined in some brisk, clever football which made them worthy of the first victory gained by their country over Wales since 1914. - The Times - Tuesday 14th March, 1922
