    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Two youngsters, Mark Wright and Mark Hughes, had mixed fortunes in their international debuts. Hughes outjumped Wright to head a superb winning goal for Wales. Terry Fenwick came on as substitute for Alvin Martin in the eightieth minute for the first of his twenty caps. The Sun reacted to the defeat by offering readers 'Robson Out/Clough In' lapel badges.  Robson commented: 'I am caught up in a tabloid circulation war, and they are saying and doing outrageous things just to sell newspapers off my back. All the football reporters I talk to tell me it is not they who are putting the boot in, but their editors. It is disgraceful.'
