    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Bob Latchford headed an early goal with the help of a deflection in this second European championship qualifier, but England became disjointed after centre-half Dave Watson went off with an injury in the twenty-first minute. Steve Coppell, continually running the Irish defence into disarray, smacked a shot against the bar and Kevin Keegan headed wide when well placed before Gerry Daly hooked in an equaliser. Mark Lawrenson and David O'Leary were rock solid at the heart of the Irish defence, and Liam Brady was their most creative player as Ireland battled to a deserved draw.
