    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England dug deep to come up with one of their finest performances under the Greenwood banner and against all the odds they breathed life back into their World Cup campaign. Trevor Brooking gave England an eighteenth minute lead which the Hungarians cancelled out seconds before half-time. It was in the second-half that England really turned on the pressure, and they got their reward in the shape of a brilliantly taken goal by Brooking, who drove a rising shot so powerfully after accepting a pass from Kevin Keegan that the ball jammed in the net behind the stanchion.  Keegan put the result beyond doubt when he scored from the penalty spot in the seventy third minute after being brought down by a desperate tackle. Brooking and Keegan were devastating together and were the main motivators of one of the greatest displays ever seen from an England team on a foreign field.
