    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Just before the kick-off England heard the news that Denmark had beaten Greece 2-0 to clinch the place in the European championship finals, so it was something of an anti-climax as they went into action against Luxembourg. Skipper Bryan Robson refused to allow chins to drop, and he was the main motivator as England cruised to a comfortable victory. Robson scored two of the goals, with Bobby Robson's former Ipswich faithfuls Terry Butcher and Paul Mariner netting a goal each. Manchester United right-back Mick Duxbury made his debut in an England defence that was rarely troubled by the shot-shy Luxembourg forwards.
