    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

A superbly struck second-half goal by Gary Lineker gave England a well merited victory over a disciplined Swiss team in a final warm-up match before the European championship finals. Peter Shilton hardly had a shot to save in the first-half before making way for substitute Chris Woods, who was a little busier but yet again kept a clean sheet. Lineker's goal was set up for him in the fifty-ninth minute by clever combination work between Bryan Robson and Peter Beardsley, with Lineker reading the situation perfectly to be in the right place at the right time to sweep the ball into the net.
