    Match Report by Mike Payne


    Match Report by Norman Giller

Bobby Robson responded to all the criticism by reverting to the 4-2-4 system in which he had been a key man for England as a player a quarter of century earlier. For the midfield role he shared with Johnny Haynes, he called in Manchester United partners Bryan Robson and Ray Wilkins, and for his old-style wingers he selected Mark Chamberlain and John Barnes. Loose marking let McGhee in for an early goal that was cancelled out by a spectacular thirty-sixth minute equaliser from the edge of the box by Tony Woodcock. Peter Shilton kept England in the match with a series of marvelous saves, and the heavily abused manager could feel satisfied with his bold experiment at the final whistle. A young striker called Gary Lineker won his first cap when he substituted for injured Tony Woodcock in the seventy-third minute. Steve Hunt came on for Chamberlain to win the first of his two caps. It was fitting that this final match in the Home Championship between the auld enemy should finish all square. For the record, of the 102 England-Scotland Home Championship matches England won 40. Scotland 39 and 23 were drawn. England scored 185 goals to 166 by the Scots.
