    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

The Germans made the mistake of not getting themselves properly acclimatised, and they were run to the edge of exhaustion in the second-half as England stepped up the pace. Kerry Dixon had an exceptional first full game in an England shirt, scoring twice in the second-half after laying on the first goal for Bryan Robson in the first-half. Four minutes before half-time Peter Shilton played a vital part in an outstanding team display when he saved a Brehme penalty. The Germans arrived in Mexico only two days before the match, and their players were huffing and puffing in less than an hour of running around in the rarified air.
