Northern Ireland lost their 4 year unbeaten home record to Wales in a poor British Championship for the Ulstermen after a successful World Cup and partial European Qualifying campaign defeating West Germany the previous year.
Two players made their Welsh debuts – Jeff Hopkins of Fulham and Alan Davies of Manchester United. Striker Gordon Davies scored his first goal for Wales in his 8th international appearance, lobbing the ball over Pat Jennings on 64. Northern Ireland finished the competition with 2 points but had failed to score a single goal, manager Billy Bingham said; “It was the same old story – we just couldn’t get the ball into the net although we carved out plenty of scoring chances.”
