    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England gave a disjointed and punchless performance against a slick Spanish team that deserved victory by a wider margin. It might have been a different story if David White, making his debut on the right side of the attack, had converted an early chance created for him by Nigel Clough. Des Walker and Mark Wright looked uncomfortable at the heart of the defence, and their indecision led to Spain's winning goal. This time The Sun portrayed Graham Taylor's head as a Spanish onion. It was all going to end in tears.
