    Match Report by Norman Giller

Trevor Cherry, with two teeth knocked out by a punch, was unluckily sent off with the culprit Bertoni in the eighty second minute. It was Bertoni who had equalised a third minute goal by Stuart Pearson when he scored with a curling free-kick in the fifteenth minute. The game became bogged down in midfield, with England unable to penetrate Argentina's in-depth defence. Emlyn Hughes cleared off the goal-line in the closing moments.
