    Match Report by Norman Giller

Romania's talented Gheorghe Hagi hit the woodwork twice in this World Cup qualifier before Glenn Hoddle calmed England's nerves with a beautifully constructed goal after he had run on to a free-kick from Kenny Sansom. Camataru equalised in the second-half with the England defenders standing still appealing for a handling offence that escaped the notice of the referee. England still needed two points from their last two home games to guarantee a place in the World Cup finals in Mexico.

Source Notes

Wembley Stadium introduced a special section to cater for families, offering a half-price seat for youngsters accompanied by an adult. Nearly 8,000 took advantage of the scheme.
