    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Gary Pallister, stepping up from Second Division football with Middlesbrough, made an excellent debut alongside Tony Adams in an England defence that coped well with a Hungarian attack that promised much more than it finally produced. For goalkeeper Chris Woods, the understudy to Peter Shilton, it was a sixth successive full game in which he had not conceded a goal. Bobby Robson made it clear before hand that he would be experimenting with the European championships in mind, and he replaced Beardsley, Lineker and Waddle with Hateley, Cottee and Hoddle in search of a back-up attacking formation. There was little to encourage Robson that he had found the right blend.
