    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Gary Lineker struck his forty-eighth goal in the fourteenth minute, and then managed to miss a much easier chance that would have brought him level with Bobby Charlton's all-time record. It was to be his final goal in an outstanding England career. CIS, made up of the remnants of the old Soviet empire in an era of crumbling walls and shifting boundaries, scored at the end of the first-half and the beginning of the second-half.  It was Trevor Steven who saved the match for England with his first international goal for six years in the seventy-second minute. Graham Taylor gave first caps to Nigel Martyn, Carlton Palmer and Keith Curle, and the media began to question his selection policy and whether he really had any idea what his best team might be.
