    Background: SWANSEA, WALES, UK/ZURICH, SWITZERLAND

    In the last year of the British Home International competition, Wales and Northern Ireland fought out an entertaining draw on May 22. In front of a crowd of just over seven thousand, Wales went into the lead in the 51st minute when Mark Hughes chested down a high ball and put it past goalkeeper Jim Platt. Wales went close to going two up minutes later when Ian Rush shot from just two metres outside the goalmouth. Northern Ireland's equaliser came in the 73rd minute when Gerry Armstrong surprised everybody, including himself, by sneaking in a header when the high cross did not seemed destined to reach him.

    In Zurich, Italy continued their disappointing run since winning the World Cup in 1982, by losing to West Germany 1-0. Although Italians went close early on, they seldom threatened the West German goal. The deciding goal of the match came in the 61st minute when burly German defender Peter Briegel leapt above the Italian defence to force home a header past goalkeeper Ivano Bordon. Italy fought hard to get back into the game. A curling shot by Bagni went just the wrong side of the post, but in the end, they could not find a way past the West German defence.
