    Match Report by Norman Giller

Two spectacular goals in the last eight minutes - a thirty-five yard rifle shot from Tony Currie followed by a rising drive from the edge of the penalty area by Peter Barnes - gave England a winning send-off to the Home Championship. Currie had come on as a substitute for Trevor Cherry, who was carried off with a fractured collarbone in the sixteenth minute. Bob Latchford gave England an eighth minute lead before limping off to be replaced by Paul Mariner. Wales equalised through Dwyer during a long spell of dominance in the second-half before Currie and Barnes stepped on to the scoring stage.
