    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Bryan Robson and Glenn Hoddle were recalled to the midfield, and they were the tandem team that gave England a decided edge over the Hungarians.  Hoddle scored an early goal to settle England down, and made the third goal for Paul Mariner after Sammy Lee had made it 2-0 with a twenty-yard drive. The victory meant England were still just about breathing in the European championship.
