  • Extended description

    With the game almost over and Ireland leading by one goal to nil, England score in the dying seconds and Ireland's dream of going to the 1958 World Cup ends. Phil Greene's commentary captures the joy of Ireland's goal and the bitter disappointment of John Atyeo's last-minute equaliser for England.

    The final score was Ireland 1 - England 1, with England qualifying for the World Cup.
