    Match Report by Mike Payne

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Don Revie boldy opened his career as England manager by making a double substitution in the seventieth minute of this European championship qualifier. Revie sent on Dave Thomas and Trevor Brooking for Frank Worthington  and Martin Dobson, and it was Thomas who created the first goal when his cross was headed in by Mike Channon. Two more goals followed in the next nine minutes. Channon found Bell with a superb diagonal pass, and he steered it into the net with a well placed shot. Then the inspired Channon crossed the ball for Bell to head in the third goal that sent choruses of 'Land of Hope and Glory' thundering around Wembley for an England team newly decked out in jerseys with red and blue shoulder stripes. The Admiral was in command, and there was huge criticism of the way England had sold their image to a sportswear company that had their name 'Admiral' splashed across the tracksuits.

Ivan Pekarik, the Czechoslovak centre-forward would die prematurely at the age of 28 years to acute leukemia, on 28 July 1980.
