    Match Report by Mike Payne


    Match Report by Norman Giller

Gary Lineker produced the second four-goal burst of his international career, taking over from Jimmy Greaves as the second top England scorer of all time and he was now just four goals behind Bobby Charlton's record 49-goal haul. Many considered this should not have been classified as a full international, but there was no doubting Lineker's ability as a deadly finisher as he found the net in the first, twenty-third, thirtieth and seventieth minutes.  Lineker joined the England squad just for this match after taking part in club commitments with Tottenham. This was the second time he had scored four goals in an England shirt, and it included his fifth hat-trick.
