    Match Report by Norman Giller

Mark Hateley excited the Wembley spectators with an exhibition of old-fashioned centre-forward play, powering his way through the Finnish defence for two goals in this opening 1986 World Cup qualifier. Bryan Robson and Tony Woodcock  were also on the mark, and in the closing moments Kenny Sansom made it 5-0 with his one and only goal in eighty-six international appearances. Gary Stevens made his debut as substitute for injured Mick Duxbury. The Wembley floodlights temporarily failed while the Finnish players were on the pitch for a pre-match warm-up, and they seemed to be in the dark for the rest of the evening. England might easily have reached double figures with more accurate finishing. Tony Hateley, Mark's father who knew a thing or three about centre-forward play, was a proud spectator.
