International Spink

International Spink

On this day in 1983, Nigel Spink made his only international appearance.

Villa’s keeper went on as a second-half substitute for Peter Shilton in a 1-1 draw against Australia in Melbourne. He kept a clean sheet – just as he had done the previous year when going on as a sub for Jimmy Rimmer in the European Cup final against Bayern Munich.
