    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England and West Germany have had some classic confrontations on the football field, but this was not one of them. The Germans decided on a policy of suffocating defence, and the game deteriorated into a midfield muddle. Bryan Robson came closest to scoring for a England with a first-half header that was tipped over the bar by Schumacher, and the subdued, half-fit Rummenigge threatened to win the match with one moment of brilliance. His sniper shot from twenty-five yards rocked the England crossbar in the closing minutes of a best-forgotten game. England now had to beat Spain by two clear goals to qualify for a place in the semi-finals.
