    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Wales scored their first victory in England for forty-two years and their first ever at Wembley. Leighton James netted the only goal of the game from the penalty spot a minute before half-time after Peter Shilton had pulled him down following a mistake by Emlyn Hughes. The calls for Don Revie to be replaced were now reaching a crescendo, and the England manager seemed to have lost all the confidence and enthusiasm that were such vital ingredients of his days as manager at Leeds. Unsubstantiated rumours were flying around Fleet Street that Revie was ready to throw in the towel, and it was many months later before it emerged that round about this time he had been making overtures to the Football Association hierarchy about settlement of his contract.
