    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England were fortunate not to be three goals down before Peter Taylor scored the only goal of a scrappy match with a low shot from twenty yards in the fifty-ninth minute. Eight of England's players between them had just ten caps, with Tony Towers, Brian Greenhoff and Stuart Pearson making their debuts. Only some exceptional goalkeeping by Ray Clemence saved England from defeat, and the player turnover was so great that many people were beginning to question Don Revie's grasp of international management.
