    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England were flattered by the 4-0 scoreline, and the Egyptians might have salvaged a draw but for the safe hands of Peter Shilton. Club calls meant that Bobby Robson was unable to field several of his World Cup players, and he gave first caps to Danny Wallace and Peter Beardsley. It was Wallace's one and only international appearance, and he marked it with a goal. Gordon Cowans and Trevor Steven were both on the scoresheet, and England were given help by an own goal.
