    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England were on the way to their first home defeat under Ron Greenwood from the moment Satrustegui snatched an early goal following a misunderstanding at the heart of the defence between Ipswich partners Terry Butcher and Russell Osman. A rain-saturated surface seemed to give England greater problems than their opponents, and it was against the run of play when Glenn Hoddle equalised with a blistering volley after a Bryan Robson cross had been blocked in the twenty-seventh minute. Spain quickly regained the lead through Zamora, and only their weak finishing prevented them scoring a more emphatic victory. As host of the 1982 World Cup finals, Spain were desperate to find a winning combination and they played with more urgency than a strangely lethargic England side. It was Ron Greenwood's first experience of defeat at Wembley, and sections of the media were now pointing their poison pens at him.
