    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England hit the woodwork four times before Streich gave the East Germans a fortunate lead in the sixty-seventh minute. Just sixty seconds later Mike Channon cancelled it out with a free-kick hammered low through the defensive wall from twenty yards. Martin Dobson, Colin Bell and Trevor Brooking dominated the match in midfield. Dobson was winning the second of five caps under three different managers. Mercer, always ready with a quip regardless of the team's performance, said: 'We hit the woodwork more times than a team of lumberjacks.'
