    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Two days before being named Footballer of the Year after his 49 goals for Tottenham, Clive Allen was celebrating what he thought was his first goal for England against Turkey in this European championship qualifier. But the referee disallowed it, and there was a further disappointment for him in his first international match for three years when he was substituted by Mark Hateley. England had expected a shoal of goals, but were unable to find the target against a disciplined Turkish defence. A swirling wind made ball control difficult, and the game came bogged down in midfield as the players struggled to come to terms with the aggravating conditions.
