    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Trevor Francis gave England their first victory over Wales in five matches when he struck a powerful shot high into the net after Bryan Robson had pushed a short free-kick into his path in the seventy-fourth minute. Glenn Hoddle had looked the most inventive player on the pitch, and England lost a lot of their poise and control when he limped off early in the second-half. Wales were always a threat and goalkeeper Joe Corrigan rescued England with three outstanding saves. England played a conventional defence, with Phil Thompson and Terry Butcher proving rock-solid partners.
