    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Uruguay led from the eighth minute through an angrily disputed penalty after winger Acosta fell over Mark Hateley's outstretched leg. England made and missed half a dozen scoring chances before Cabrera wrapped it up with a cleverly created second half goal just as it looked as if England would take full command. A draw would have been a fairer reflection of the play. Clive Allen, who had been scoring buckets of goals for Tottenham, missed two sitters, and was replaced by Tony Woodcock after Uruguay had gone two goals clear.  'I was disappointed with the result but delighted with our performance,' said the beleaguered Bobby Robson. 'None of my players deserve criticism after this whole-hearted display.'
