"...an 80,000 capacity stadium not even a quarter full as the people of Santiago were encouraged by adverts on television exorting them not to bother going to the game when they could watch it in the comfort of their own homes live on television." - Monday, 18 June 1984, Newcastle Journal

    Match Report by Mike Payne


    Match Report by Norman Giller

Despite unleashing more than twenty shots at goal England could not find the back of the net in a totally one-sided game. Chilean goalkeeper Rojas made half a dozen unbelievable saves, and also enjoyed a charmed life when the ball hit him when he was stretched on the ground on four occasions. Clive Allen came off at the end of his second full international wondering how he had managed to miss at least a hat-trick of goals. Bryan Robson gave a magnificent captain's performance, and continually won the ball in midfield to set up England's avalanche of attacks. The game did not exactly capture the imagination of the Chilean public. There were just 3,876 spectators scattered around the vast National Stadium in Santiago.
