    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Colin Bell cashed in on clever approach work by Alan Ball to score the decisive winning goal in the first-half of this World Cup qualifying match.  Liverpool team-mates Ray Clemence and Kevin Keegan made quiet debuts in what was Sir Alf Ramsey's 100th match as manager. A feature of the game was the way Peter Storey snuffed out the challenge of Wales dangerman Leighton James with a controlled, man-to-man containing role. Keegan, conspicuous with his bubble-permed hair, had a golden opportunity to mark his debut with a last-minute goal, but Leeds goalkeeper Gary Sprake whipped the ball off his toes as he attempted to dribble the ball into the net. It was a memorable night for both Keegan and Clemence, who had each started their careers in the football outpost of Scunthorpe United.
