- Match Classification The England team is generally thought of as a 'B' team selection (even by the Australian TV commentators). It was too close to the start of Euro '80 (twelve days before England's first match) for such a trip for the 'A' team to make. Further evidence is supported by the five debutant players. It is credited as a full international by both FAs.
