Martin Tyler talks Sky Sports through his first and best commentary moments with England.
First: World Cup warm-up
The first England game I commentated on, I’ll never forget. It was a great honour to be chosen, I was working for ITV at the time, in 1982.
They’d selected me to do the World Cup finals that summer in Spain. I pointed out when I was chosen that I’d never done an England game, and I was given a game in the build-up away to Wales at the old Cardiff City Stadium, Ninian Park. England won 1-0 with Trevor Francis scoring the goal.
