    Match Report by Norman Giller

A goal in each half by Trevor Brooking and Steve Coppell lifted England to a victory that put them in good heart for the European championship finals three weeks away. Brooking scored his goal after just seven minutes, continuing where he had left off as West Ham's goal hero against Arsenal in the FA Cup Final. It was a Brooking back-heel that set up Coppell's goal in the seventy-fifth minute, the Manchester United winger steering the ball home after goalkeeper Alan Rough had parried his first shot. Ron Greenwood said: 'Our performances against Argentina and now Scotland prove what we are capable of when we get it right. We must find consistency at the highest level.'
