    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

England struggled to find their rhythm in the goalless first twenty minutes of this European championship qualifier, but the floodgates opened with a Luxembourg own goal. A minute later Steve Coppell headed in a Bryan Robson cross and Tony Woodcock and Luther Blissett made it 4-0 by half-time. The first twenty minutes of the second-half were, as in the first-half, barren but then England stepped up the pace and Blissett completed his hat-trick and substitutes Mark Chamberlain and Glenn Hoddle found the net before, in the final seconds, Phil Neal netted the ninth goal to equal the haul when England - including Bobby Robson - beat Luxembourg in 1960. Blissett's opening goal of his hat-trick was the first scored by a black player in a full England international.
