    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Holland's young experimental team were sunk by two goals in five minutes immediately after half-time by Tony Woodcock and Graham Rix. It was Rix, Bryan Robson and Ray Wilkins who bossed the match in midfield, and assured a victory for Ron Greenwood in his last Wembley match as manager. He had already decided to stand down at the end of the World Cup finals. Goalkeeper Peter Shilton captained England for the first time, and was at last clearly Greenwood's number one choice.
