    Background: England retained the lead of their qualifying group of the European Soccer Championship by beating Cyprus by one goal to nil in Limassol on Sunday (11 May).

    In spite of a sixth minute goal by Kevin Keegan, who headed the ball in from a corner-kick by David Thomas, England were unable to build up their lead.

    The Cyprus team played with their backs to the wall in massed defence which was effective against the English attacks. The visitors kept the ball around the Cyprus goal mouth but were unable to carry the movements through to a satisfactory conclusion.

    The players were ill-served by the uneven quality of the pitch but were still expected to fare better against a team which contained seven members of a side they had beaten 5-0 in England only a few weeks before.
