    Match Report by Mike Payne


    Match Report by Norman Giller

Gary Mabbutt celebrated his recall after three years by giving England the lead in the twenty-first minute of this European championship qualifier. It was his Tottenham team-mate Glenn Hoddle who monopolised the match from midfield, and  he created enough chances for England to have sewn up the match long before Viv Anderson scored the second goal in the fifty-seventh minute.  Terry Butcher captained England for the first time, and Ray Wilkins came on as a second-half substitute for his eighty-fourth and final appearance for England. It had been a distinguished international career, scarred only by his loss of temper in the World Cup in Mexico when he threw he ball at the referee and got his marching orders. 'The worst moment of my career,' he said later. 'I had always been proud of my self control, but this time I just lost it.'
