    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Without Keegan, Wilkins, Brooking, Coppell and Trevor Francis, a new-look England attack took a long time to get into its stride in this opening qualifying match for the 1982 World Cup finals. A Terry McDermott goal in the thirty-fifth minute calmed jangling nerves, and England finally won comfortably with three goals in the last thirty-three minutes through Tony Woodcock, a McDermott penalty and a beautiful creation by Paul Mariner, who skillfully deceived three defenders before firing the ball majestically into the net with his left foot. Bryan Robson was a powerhouse in midfield and Eric Gates and Graham Rix made satisfactory debuts.
