notes:

Following crowd trouble at Ninian Park, Cardiff during the 1976 European Championship campaign the Football Association of Wales (FAW) were ordered to play their home matches away from the capital city.

In order to maximise the profits from the match with Scotland, the FAW opted to play the 'home' match at Anfield, Liverpool as opposed to the Racecourse Ground, Wrexham.
