    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

The Russians missed a first-half penalty and were beaten for the first time in eighteen matches by a classic sixty-seventh strike by Chris Waddle. It was a goal created in Newcastle, with Peter Beardsley chasing a long ball to the corner by his fellow Geordie Waddle, who raced in to the middle to meet the return pass at the far post and hammer it into the net. Steve Hodge came on for the first of his twenty-four caps. Reporters who had been pouring oil on Bobby Robson suddenly started wondering aloud if he had started to put together a team capable of winning the World Cup.
