    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Steve McMahon and Mick Harford won their first caps in a match that was in danger of being called off as driving rain turned the ground into a quagmire. The waterlogged pitch made decent football an impossibility, and the game developed into farce. Peter Beardsley was made captain in place of the absent Bryan Robson.  Stuart Pearce went closest to breaking the deadlock with a fizzing left foot shot from fifteen yards that was hacked off the Israel goal-line with the goalkeeper beaten.
