    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Bobby Robson made a double substitution in the second-half when he sent on Mark Hateley and Trevor Francis for Paul Mariner and Tony Woodcock, and within a minute England at last broke down the massed East German defence. The goal was an all-Manchester United affair, with Bryan Robson volleying in a cross from his clubmate Ray Wilkins. In a match that was a warm-up for the start of the 1986 World Cup qualifying campaign England had one scare when East German striker Streich, playing his hundredth international, smacked a twenty-five yard shot against a post. There was an attendance of just 23,951, and the tabloids blamed Bobby Robson!
