    Match Report by Norman Giller

The game should have been played in Belfast but vecause of the political problems was switched to Goodison Park at the request of the Irish FA. A rare mistake by goalkeeper Pat Jennings let Martin Chivers in for his first goal in the ninth minute, and another mistake - this time by Terry Neill - set Chivers up for the winning goal nine minutes from the end. Dave Clements scored for Ireland from the penalty spot after a foul by Peter Storey in the twenty-second minute. Wolves striker John Richards won his only cap. England's disjointed display brought them jeers and slow handclaps from the Goodison crowd, the majority of whom seemed to be supporting the Irish.
