    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England's World Cup turned into a nightmare in the space of five minutes just before half-time when first Bryan Robson was taken off with a recurrence of his shoulder injury, and then acting captain Ray Wilkins was sent off for throwing the ball at the referee in protest at an off-side decision. The ten men of England battled with enormous energy and spirit in the second-half and could feel satisfied with their point. Temperatures on the pitch soared above 100 degrees, and players on both sides were reduced to walking pace. The ten men of England played boldly and bravely, and the defence - with Terry Butcher like a colossus - stifled any hopes the Moroccans had of making capital of their extra man.
