    Match Report by Norman Giller

Dennis Wise, picked for his first cap despite a poor run of form with Wimbledon, silenced the critics of his selection with the crucial winning goal that he scrambled into the Turkish net in the thirty-second minute of this European championship qualifier. Geoff Thomas also made his international bow in a largely undistinguished game, and was substituted at half-time by Steve Hodge. David Seaman was in excellent form, and looked ready and able to challenge Chris Woods for the role of regular successor to the great Peter Shilton.
