    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

A virtual England 'B' team traveled 'Down Under' to play in a match to celebrate one hundred years of football in Australia. Goals from Paul Mariner and Glenn Hoddle gave England a 2-0 half-time lead, and the Australians managed to pull one back through a second-half penalty. Ipswich partners Russell Osman and Terry Butcher made their debuts together at the heart of the England defence, and there was also a first cap for Alan Sunderland, who was substituted by another debutant in Peter Ward. Neither player was selected by England again. David Armstrong won the first of his three caps.
