    Match Report by Norman Giller

Phil Neal scored from the penalty spot in the seventy-eighth minute to end a bold victory bid by Wales on an ice-bound pitch. Ian Rush had given Wales a fourteenth minute lead, and was just a coat of paint away from making it 2-0 nine minutes later when his shot struck a post. Terry Butcher equalised six minutes before half-time following a quickly taken free-kick by Gordon Cowans who, along with Derek Statham, was making his debut. Neal slotted his penalty home just four days after missing a vital spot-kick for Liverpool in an FA Cup tie.
