substitute notes:

Peter Ward is the seventeenth England player to make his debut as a substitute.
England have now used 130 substitutes. Leeds United AFC have now provided fourteen players, one behind Manchester United FC's record of fifteen players.

team notes:

Frank Lampard's second appearance comes seven years and 233 days after his first.
Australian broadcast of the match stated twice that Bryan Robson's substitute replacement was Kevin Reeves. However, Reeves was wearing no.14. and visually, the player that entered the field was wearing no.4., and clearly the blonde-haired Greenhoff, not the dark-haired Reeves.

    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.
