    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

After surviving some early scares, England took command with a first-half goal by Gary Lineker. Peter Beardsley netted the second goal while Lineker was off the pitch receiving treatment after being elbowed in the throat, and it was Lineker who clinched England's place in the quarter-finals with his fifth goal of the tournament after combining with Tottenham team-mates Glenn Hoddle and Gary Stevens. Waiting for England in the quarter-finals were Argentina and Maradona. It would be the first meeting between the two countries since the Falklands War of 1982.
