    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England had just a Kevin Keegan goal to show at half-time in reply to three first-half goals by the Austrians in a match littered with defensive errors. Goals by Steve Coppell and Ray Wilkins brought England battling back to 3-3, only for them to lose to a late goal headed past substitute goalkeeper Ray Clemence by Pezzey following a free-kick. It was England's  first set-back since the 2-1 defeat by West Germany back in February 1978, and the first time they had conceded more than three goals since the 5-1 defeat by Brazil back in 1964.
