    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Graham Taylor made the surprise tactical decision to leave out Paul Gascoigne when most people felt that his flair might have made the difference against Jack Charlton's well-drilled Republic of Ireland team in this European championship qualifier.  Gordon Cowans was recalled in place of Gazza for his first cap for four years. England were flattered by their 1-0 lead when David Platt scored in the sixty-seventh minute of a match in which skill took second place to strength, and justice was done when Tony Cascarino equalised in the seventy ninth minute after coming on as a substitute.
