    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Gary Lineker made it a memorable fifty-fourth birthday for manager Bobby Robson when he scored all four goals against Spain in a dynamic display of finishing in atrocious, mud-caked conditions in the Bernebeu Stadium. Three weeks earlier he had scored a hat-trick for Barcelona against Real Madrid, and now the combined might of those club defences crumbled before him as he pounced for two goals in each half after Spain had taken an early lead. He headed the first, poached the second and third from close range and powered the fourth from the edge of the penalty area after running on to a pass by his favourite partner Peter Beardsley. Tony Adams, twenty-year-old Arsenal centre-half, became the first player born after the 1966 World Cup triumph to be capped by England.
