England cruised to a comfortable 4-0 British Home Championship victory against Northern Ireland at Wembley in a match where Brighton and Hove Albion defender Steve Foster and West Bromwich Albion marksman Cyrille Regis both made their debuts for The Three Lions, the latter as a second-half substitute for Sampdoria forward Trevor Francis. England found themselves a goal up within the first minute of the clash as Francis ran into the eighteen-yard box and delivered the ball on a silver platter for Bryan Robson who made no mistake from a few yards out. England´s second goal arrived three minutes after the interval, with captain Kevin Keegan heading home a brilliantly crossed ball from Francis, and as the stadium clock ticked on, the men in white shirts had their third in the 84th minute through Ray Wilkins whose deflected shot from outside the area went past Arsenal custodian Pat Jennings and into the top left-hand corner of the net. And barely a couple of minutes later Glenn Hoddle notched up the final goal of the contest with a close range finish after Jennings had parried an attempt from his Highbury teammate Kenny Sansom. In their next British Home Championship fixture, England would go on to edge out Wales by 1-0 at Cardiff City´s Ninian Park thanks to a goal from the inform Francis, while Northern Ireland, for their part, would be held to a 1-1 draw against Scotland at Windsor Park in Belfast, with Stoke City playmaker Sammy McIlroy netting for the Ulstermen and Ipswich Town´s John Wark finding the target for the Scottish side.
