    Match Report by Norman Giller

Just four days after their triumph over the world champions, England showed their worst side with a loose performance against a Welsh team out to impress their new manager Mike England. Larry Lloyd, recalled to the middle of the England defence after eight years, had a nightmare match. He was booked, injured and substituted after being given a chasing by a lively Welsh forward line in which Leighton James was outstanding. Paul Mariner gave England the lead in the sixteenth minute, but Wales quickly equalised through Mickey Thomas. Two goals from James and an own goal by Phil Thompson piled on the misery for an England team missing the drive and industry of injured Kevin Keegan. It was England's first defeat in Wales since 1955.
