    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Finland shocked England with an early goal and might have gone 2-0 up but for Terry Butcher clearing the ball off the goal-line with Peter Shilton beaten. Mark Hateley equalised five minutes into the second-half, but England were unable to force a winner against a spirited Finnish team that hung on for a deserved World Cup point. England now needed just three points from their three home qualifying games to qualify for the 1986 World Cup finals, which had been switched from financially-strapped Colombia to Mexico.
