Notes

  • Ireland Equaliser:  Doherty's goal was the last kick of the game. The referee blew for full-time after the goal was scored which was just as well for Doherty as he had managed to injure himself whilst scoring.
  • Missed Penalty: Wilf Mannion:  1st miss from 1st taken. On 70 minutes "...Hinton magnificently saved a fierce penalty kick by Mannion."
