30th March – Today In Our Footballing History

30/03/1983 Belfast Turkey 2-1 Martin O’Neill, John McClelland

Jim Platt, Jimmy Nicholl, Mal Donaghy, John O’Neill, John McClelland, Ian Stewart, Norman Whiteside, Martin O’Neill, Gerry Armstrong, Sammy McIlroy, Noel Brotherston

A more comfortable victory than the final scoreline suggested, Martin O’Neill scored via a deflection on 5 at the end of a corner and John McClelland, also from a corner on 18 gave Northern Ireland an early 2 goal advantage, but no further goals were forthcoming for the home side and the Turks pulled one back on 55 through Sengün.
