Reliable striker Phil Boyer won his one and only England cap in 1976 under Don Revie as the England coach summoned a host of back-up players and youthful protegees for a friendly against Wales at Wrexham. England won 2-1 and Boyer, who was at Norwich at the time (he is pictured above in action for the Canaries), put in a performance of limited note. He didn't return, and went back to scoring goals for a number of clubs for several respectable years to come, often in tandem with Ted MacDougall. (Matthew Rudd)
