    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Kerry Dixon and Gary Lineker scored two goals apiece against a gallant but outclassed United States team. Lineker's first goal was  memorable. He chested down a pass from Glenn Hoddle, swivelled round and volleyed an unstoppable right foot shot into the net. Glenn Hoddle had a penalty saved, and Trevor Steven scored the fifth and final goal after his Everton clubmate Paul Bracewell had acrobatically knocked the ball into his path.  Bracewell was getting his first full outing after playing as a substitute against West Germany, and Bobby Robson awarded a first cap to goalkeeper Chris Woods.
