    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

'Captain Courageous' Bryan Robson, back following his hamstring injury, scored both England goals including a penalty after Israel had taken a shock early lead. His first goal was a right foot volley after fifty minutes following a perfect pass by Glenn Hoddle, and he scored the winner from the penalty spot in the closing minutes after former Liverpool player Avi Cohen had punched his header off the goal-line. It was a fitting way for Bryan Robson to celebrate his fiftieth cap.
