3-2 vs. Northern Ireland, Empire Stadium, Wembley BC HW
Jimmy McIlroy missed his 32nd min. penalty against Hopkinson. It hit the post before rebounding into the net off the goalkeepers head..

Hopkinson wiped four years of the record when he faced McIlroy's penalty, to become the youngest to face a kick, previously held by Ted Sagar for 21 years. Hopkinson still holds the record.
