Jesper Olsen stopped Bobby Robson celebrating a victory in his first match when he conjured a spectacular last minute goal that gave Denmark a thoroughly deserved draw in this European championship qualifier. Olsen outwitted three England defenders in a jinking run before guiding the ball wide of Peter Shilton, who had performed minor miracles keeping out the talented Danish forwards. Trevor Francis had given England a seventh minute lead, but they were then forced on the defensive and it was thanks mainly to the acrobatics of Shilton that the Danes had to wait more than an hour before they finally got an equaliser through a Hansen penalty. Francis scored his second goal ten minutes from the final whistle with a hooked shot that restored England's lead and looked like being the winner until Olsen's moment of magic. Ricky Hill became Robson's first new cap when he came on as substitute for Tony Morley in the eighty-third minute. A major surprise was that Robson had decided to kick off his reign without Kevin Keegan, whose international career ended after sixty-three caps.
