    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England's lack of goal power was beginning to eat at their confidence, and they scrambled a draw against a Welsh side buoyed by six successive victories. Crystal Palace striker Ian Walsh missed two glittering opportunities to tie up the game for Wales early in the second-half. England were setting unwanted records as the pressure increased on manager Ron Greenwood. For the first time they had gone three consecutive games without scoring, and it was the first time in history that they had gone four matches at Wembley without a victory.
